Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors
  • Knit 2 rows with three colors
  • Knit and purl and join colors

Pattern Description:

Welcome back my funny penguins on this cute winter beanie!
The beanie has a corrugated ribbing in blue and white, a cute little border pattern of snowflakes, followed by the penguins wearing red scarves and red winter pompon hats.
The upper half of the beanie is covered by snowflakes and at the top is a lovely snow star pattern.

You can knit it with any 4-ply sock yarn or similar weight acrylic yarn.

Please note: The pattern has two rows with three colors so it is not totally real fair isle.
But it's not that difficult to knit these two rounds with three colors and absolutely worth it!

The hat will fit for heads about 53 - 55 cm head cirumreference.
For bigger sizes go up one or two needle sizes and/or use 5-ply yarn (similar to Wollbutt Madelaine Merino).

Happy winter penguin knitting!
