Basic Skills Necessary:

  • some experience with two-color stranded knitting
  • weaving in the strands during knitting will save you a lot of time

Pattern Description:

Did you ever think a whole farm would fit on a beanie?
There you go :-)

I had always liked to make up a blanket or sweater with a complete farm on it. Never dreamt about getting this on a beanie.
But I did it! I chose the most traditional animals that you can find on a farm as the place on a beanie is somehow limited ;-)
It has a corrugated two color ribbing in green and off-white, a row of cows (Brunhilde, Resi & Co), little fences, cute little pigs, an egg-peerie pattern and hens and at the top is the half-timbered farm house and the sun is shining on top of it.
For smaller heads it will be a bit of a long beanie. For bigger heads more sort of a normal beanie.

There are at most two colors in one round. So it is easier to knit than you may think.

The complete beanie is knit from 4-ply sock yarn leftovers.
Note: for bigger heads use 5-ply yarn and/or bigger needle size.

I wish you as much fun knitting and wearing it as I had creating it.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
