Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

This Orca beanie was a pattern request I happily fullfilled.
It has a band of Orcas and a waves border pattern on it.
The ribbing is two-colored.

There are at most two colors in one round.
So it is easier to knit than you think!

The decreases at the top are done in one color and it's a simple decrease, too.

Thanks to Mara for testknitting the pattern and allowing me to use her pictures!

Enjoy and happy knitting!
