Hare beanie Hare beanie

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit with two colors in one round
  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

Waiting for Easter? Cute colorful hare beanie makes the waiting time a little bit more bearable ;-)

It has an easy cable ribbing (you can do it without cable needle).
And there(tm)s a running hare with a carot border at the brim and a standing hare at the top.
At the crown there are seven carots.

There are at most two colors in one round so it's easier to knit than you think.

Note: for bigger heads use needle size 3.5 mm.

Happy knitting!
