Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round
  • weave in the yarn tails and beginnings during knitting

Pattern Description:

This is a commuter trip inspired pattern :)
I(tm)m going to work by bus, passing the countryside, seeing hares in the morning and deers in the evening.

Last time, when the sun came out in the afternoon, you could see the roe deers coming out of the forest, sitting in the grass enjoying the sun as much as we do.

I had to put this little scenery on a beanie.

It is completely knitted in 4-ply sock yarn. You won(tm)t need much. Some leftovers will be enough.
Alternatively you can also use Acrylic or Merino yarn of similar weight and yardage.
And it has at most two colors in one round. So it is easier to knit than you think!

For bigger heads use 5-ply yarn (e.g. Buttinette Madeleine Merino) or go up one or two needle sizes or do both.

It starts with a typical fair isle color ribbing, followed by a little daisy peerie (border pattern). Then come the sitting roe deers. There are three different ones. One being a fawn. In the background you can see the forest and above is the blue sky with some baby clouds and at the top is the sun.

I had much fun making this one and hope you enjoy knitting it as much as I did.
It will be easier to knit when you know how weave in new yarn and yarn tails during knitting.

Enjoy and happy roe deer knitting!
