Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round on double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

I love puzzles!
My testknits go to the Sozialstiftung Bamberg for charity. It was so much fun I knitted it in two sizes and hope it will help to raise some money for the breast cancer help Bamberg.

The beanie has a two color ribbing, followed by the puzzle pattern.
As it has only two colors throughout the whole hat, it is also suitable for fairisle knitting beginners.

I used 4-ply Acrylic yarn but you can also use any similar weight yarn (e. g. sock yarn, merino).

Enjoy and happy knitting!

Please note: There is also an bigger kids/adult version of the puzzle beanie.
