Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in the round
  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

Molly the train returns again on this cute little landscape kids beanie.
It reminds me of a spinning top I had when I was small and where a small train was going round and round

It can be knitted of 4 - to 5-ply yarn (Acrylic, Merino, sock yarn). I used 4-ply sock yarn and knitted the preemie XS version.

It has a two color ribbing, followed by a tree border pattern and the train, the blue sky and the sun above.

Enjoy the ride on Molly the train!
