Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • some experiences with two-color knitting

Pattern Description:

This beanie pattern was inspired by the coming Oktoberfest and other Bavarian festivals.
It uses the two-color cast-on for which I included a picture tutorial.
The beanie has a lovely two-colored ribbing, a tiny Bavarian like peerie pattern in blue and white and an allover Pretzel pattern. At the top is a Edelweiss-like star in blue and white.

As the pattern has at most two colors in one round and is easy to remember it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.

Note: for the cast-on you need 2.75 mm needle size and for the top a set of double pointed needles size 3.00 mm.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
