Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors in one round
  • weave in the ends during knitting

Pattern Description:

In November the nights are longer and darker I tried to catch the November mystic magic in this beanie pattern.

The cats on the brick wall are looking straight at you their eyes glowing greenish in the night.

Behind them is the busy night street, with different kinds of cars speeding along in front of the houses where some windows are alight and others dark.

The street lamps and car headlights lighten up the scenery.
Above are the full moon and some November fog clouds.

At the top are the stars of a cold November night.

What(tm)s going on behind the windows?
Where are the people driving and why?
What has the cat seen?
The secret of a cold and dark November night

There are at most two colors in one round!

You can use and combine 4-ply sock yarns of different manufacturers as the one I chose might not be available where you live.
You can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
