Pattern Description:

I got a request for a mountain bike beanie with much green in it (as these are the team colors).
So there you are.
I had much fun drafting and knitting these guys :)

It is completely knitted in 4-ply sock yarn. You can also use Acrylic or other yarn of similar weight or a little bit thicker.

It has a two-color (= corrugated) ribbing in dark green and grass green, followed by a fence border pattern ( = peerie pattern) reminding of the ride in the countryside.
Then come 8 mountain bikers.
In the background you can see the forest.
At the top is a No. 1 T-shirt peerie pattern, followed by another fence and a skid mark peerie.

For bigger sizes go up one or two needle sizes (3.25mm - 3.5. mm) and/or use 5-ply yarn or both.

Certainly you can use any colors you like or leftover yarns you can spare or you have in your stash.
You don(tm)t need much of each color.

You need 4-ply sock yarn or Acrylic yarn of similar weight:
about 30 g in dark green, about 25 g in grass green, about 20 g in off-white or white, 10 g in dark
red brown, 20 g in black.

I was told that even guys like this beanie :)

Note: for Tour de France fans or race cyclists there is also a cycle race beanie pattern available in my pattern store.
And for all motor bikers the biker beanie will just be great. :)
So check them out, too!

And if your favorite isn't among my pattern you can also send me a pattern request.

Enjoy and happy bike knitting!
