I have been dreaming about a two colored pony express beanie pattern for a while.
A rider on a horse with a cowboy hat and pony express written in western style letters on it and in a somehow Western dusty color style.
Therefore I chose brown and beige.
The beanie has a corrugated ribbing and a neat herringbone edge.
There are 7 riders at the body with a nice Indian arrow peerie pattern - symbolizing the danger and hardship in which they were on their mission - and above the rider and at the top are 6 pony express riders on their prancing horses waving their cowboy hats in the air. A lovely Sheriff-star-like star is at the top.
A dream has come true with this beanie for me. I hope for you, too.
As it(tm)s only knit in two colors it(tm)s also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.
It is completely knit in 4-ply sock yarn (also suitable for reducing your yarn leftovers).
But you can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight.
I hope you have as much fun knitting this beanie as I had designing and testknitting it.
Notes on bigger sizes are included.
Enjoy and happy knitting!
