Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round
  • knit and purl
  • weave in the yarn tails during knitting

Pattern Description:

I proudly present my ultimate wolf pack beanie!
6 big wolves (2 different ones) are running around this beanie.
It is completely knitted in 4-ply sock yarn. But you can also use Acrylic yarn of similar weight or 5-ply yarn (like Buttinette Madeleine Merino) for bigger sizes.
There is a cute corrugated (two-color) ribbing, followed by a paw peerie (border pattern) and the hunting wolves. You can see the dark forest in the background, some night birds/bats flying through the night air. You can see the clouds and a full moon.
At the top of the beanie is a lovely star.

It fits sizes about 53 " 56 cm (depending on your gauge and
needle size).

There are at most two colors in one round. So it(tm)s easier to knit than you think!

Colors used are black, light grey, dark grey and off-white.

You need 3.5 mm needles for the body of the beanie and 3.0 mm needles for the decrease section.

Enjoy and happy knitting!
