Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

Another happy Easter and spring beanie idea.
There is a band of two small different lambs (one sitting, one standing) all around this beanie accompanied by a fence and flower peerie pattern. At the top is a big daisy flower.

I knit this beanie completeley with 4-ply sock yarn.
But you can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight.
For bigger sizes you can knit it with bigger needle size or 5-ply yarn (e.g. Buttinette Madeleine Merino) or both.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
