Basic Skills Necessary:

  • some experience with stranded knitting with two colors

Pattern Description:

I was inspired by Turkish carpet patterns. Therefore it got its name: Kelim.
It's very colorful but only knit with two strands of yarn throughout the whole beanie.
So it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.
You have to concentrate a bit more on the chart but I added a trick how you can remember it over the whole row.
It's easily adjustable to other sizes by leaving out or adding chart repeats. And it is a "fake" fair isle pattern and so much fun!


Knitting gauge in stranded pattern: 1 x 1 inch: 8 stitches and 9 rows

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • S/M (about 52 " 54 cm head circumreference) , the pattern can be easily adjusted to other sizes
