Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round
  • weaving in the ends and beginnings of the yarn will be of advantage

Pattern Description:

This will be my last beanie before christmas 2013.

It has only three colors in the whole beanie. So it is also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.
Even if you pull a bit too tight this beanie will still fit as it(tm)s a bit bigger than my usual beanies.
You could also reduce it to using two colors (dark blue and off-white) which would make the knitting even easier.

It has a simple two color ribbing, followed by a wild boar and it(tm)s baby boar. Then comes a little tree or forest border pattern.
The next band shows the feeding of the roe deers, above them again trees with falling snow.
At the top are 5 bird houses (bird feeding stations) with two birds and a bird food ball (Meisenkndel) dangling from the bird house where the birds can pick their food from..

Right at the center of the top is a lovely ornament.

For smaller heads it will be more of a slouchy beanie style. For bigger heads it will fit more like a normal beanie.

I knitted this beanie with 4-ply sock yarn but alternatively you can also use 4-ply Merino yarn or Acrylic yarn.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
And merry christmas!
May your christmas be as peaceful as the scenery on this hat :)
