Basic Skills Necessary:

  • do stranded knitting with at most two colors in one round on double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

Got a pattern request for a zebra kids beanie not long ago.
Here it is!
It has a two color ribbing, zebra stripes and zebra faces all around, a cute stripes crown and a zebra tail with a tiny pompon.

It has two colors throughout the whole beanie, so it(tm) also suitable for stranded knitting beginners.

I used 4-ply Acrylic yarn. You can use any similar 4- to 5-ply yarn (sock yarn, merino )

Enjoy and happy zebra knitting!

My kids beanie testknit goes to charity!

Please note: There is also a zebra beanie for bigger heads.
