Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors
  • weave in the ends during knitting

Pattern Description:

This beautiful winter theme beanie shows three different roe deers in the winter forest while it(tm)s snowing.
It actually snowed last Saturday for the first time this. So it(tm)s a nice coincidence (maybe a sign? ;-). At the crown of the beanie is a beautiful white star.
In the evening you can see these shy animals leaving the forest. I've seen some groups of them last week on my commuter trip from work home.
And they have inspired me to make this beanie.
I hope you like it as much as I do.

There are at most two colors in one round.

Note: carry the unused yarn always loosely with you otherwise your knitting will become too tight.
If the unused yarn goes over longer distances (3 to 4 stitches) cross it over the working yarn but do this at alternating positions in each round otherwise the strands will show through.
There are some great knitting videos on youtube to help you getting started with fair isle knitting.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
