A basket in our bathroom is to blame for this simple but lovely stranded pattern!
You can knit it in any 4-ply sock yarn or Acrylic yarn of similar weight.
You can adjust it to bigger sizes by using 5-ply yarn or additional pattern repeats.
As today snow came back and the top features a lovely big snowflake, I think it is the ideal pattern for the day.
Although I(tm)m already sick of so much snow :-)
But it was fun to take some winter pictures for the beanie publish. :-)
A matching cowl will be available soon.
The two-color cast-on fits the beanie perfectly.
As it only has two colors throughout the whole pattern, it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.
As the strands on the back are short you also do not have to cross them over the working yarn. This makes it also easier to knit.
The inside looks also great. Maybe you will like to turn it around and wear it inside out :-)
I needed about 35 g of each color.
Enjoy and happy knitting!
