Classic beanie for wintery days. Although this is called a boyfriend beanie - it is very unisex - consider it in the same vein as the boyfriend jean! But a whole lot of guys like a simple non-fussy hat and this will suit that! This hat was originally designed with Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino DK, which has since been discontinued. I've since knitted it in a variety of substitute yarns, and currently do so by holding two threads together of Knit Picks Palette 'fingering' weight yarn. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use a cable needle Knit in the round Knit and purl stitch Increase and decrease GAUGE 22 sts and 30 rows = 4"/10 cm over stocking ?stitch using 4mm needles. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One Size SUGGESTED YARN 200 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Debbie Bliss Cashmerino COLORWAY Maroon

I have been crafting since childhood, but really took knitting properly in 2004, and dressmaking in 2012 (pretty recent).
