Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors in one round
  • knit picture charts
  • weave in the ends during knitting

Pattern Description:

I love tiger stripes! So this fair isle tiger pattern came into existence and in a second step was turned into this hat.
However, for the top I longed for something special. And then it hit me: A tiger tail!

However, if you prefer a less excentric "topping" you can choose between a tail-less version ending, a pixie version (pointed) or the tiger-tail version.
So it's up to you which one to take.

The knitting instruction with all charts and the three different ending versions is available in English.

Note: for bigger heads use needle size 3.5 mm
Because it's longer it's a bit more slouchy than my usual beanies.


Knitting gauge in stranded knitting: 1 x 1 inch: 8 stitches and 9 rows.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • about 53 to 56 cm head circumreference (depending on your knitting gauge)


  • 45 g of black 4-ply sock yarn
  • 45 g of dark orange 4-ply sock yarn
  • 25 g of offwhite 4-ply sock yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • Circular needle 40 cm 3.00 mm
  • 5 double pointed needles size 3.00 mm for the top of the head
  • tapestry needle to weave in the ends
  • For bigger sizes use needle size 3.5 mm

Suggested yarn:

230 yards of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Buttinette sckli, Opal uni solid


black, orange, offwhite
