Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round on dpns

Pattern Description:

I love gummy bears!
So here they are again!
This time on a cute little baby and toddler hat.
Preemie size is also included.

It has a two - color ribbing, followed by a band of gummy bears and a nice cute top.

You can knit it in 4-ply sock, Acrylic or Merino yarn.

Due to the not so many color changes the beanie is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.

The two beanies in the picture went to the Sozialstiftung Bamberg in the thank you package to the hospital.

Please note: there is also an adult version of my gummy bears.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
