Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with two colors in one round

Pattern Description:

I got a pattern request for a Triathlon beanie.
So I made up a swimmer of whom you only see the swimming cap and his arm with some waves border, added the cyclist and the runners. At the top of the beanie is the winning cup.

It(tm)s a lovely two colored beanie for sports people.

As it has at most two colors and these colors all throughout the hat it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
