Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knittng with at most two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

This pattern is dedicated to the countryside and farm live.
It is a cute two color beanie and as it only uses two colors throughout the whole project it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.
It has a two color ribbing, followed by a little border pattern symbolizing farm houses and trees.
After that comes a band of farmer and his wife in a paper doll style.
Then there is a little wave-border with goose and ducks.
At the top is a fence, followed by 7 cocks and another tiny fence that gives the crown a great look!

I knitted it completely in 4-ply sock yarn. But you can also use Acrylic or Merino yarn of similar weight.
For bigger heads go up one or two needle sizes and/or use 5-ply yarn or both.

I needed about 35 g of each color. So it can be knitted from sock yarn leftovers.

If you like animals you may also like my farm beanie.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
