Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round and on double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

Can(tm)t wait for the Tour de France to start in July!
I love to watch the colorful landscape, the cheering crowd, the cyclists, the sunflower fields
So here is the cycle race beanie as baby, toddler version. Preemie sizes are included.

I modified the cyclists to fit on a smaller hat.
The beanie has a two color (corrugated ribbing), followed by a tiny sunflower border to represent the sunflower fields the cyclists are passing :)

The bigger version has some clouds in the sky. The smaller one leaves them out. Both versions have a blue sky and the sun at the top.

For preemie sizes use 4-ply sock yarn and 2.5 mm needles.
For normal sizes use 4-ply Acrylic or Merino yarn and 3.00 mm needles.

There are at most two colors in one round. So it(tm)s easier to knit than you may think!

Please note: there is also an adult cycle race beanie!

Enjoy and happy cyclist knitting!
