I designed this beanie in collaboration with my three year old. After we couldnâ€™t find a pattern that she liked on Ravelry, we finally found some inspiration with a honeycomb stitch that I love which Iâ€™d used in one of her baby blankets.
I was writing up the pattern as we were visiting my husbandâ€™s family for our first bout of post-Covid travel - we hadnâ€™t seen them for three years and in that time weâ€™d also welcomed my nephew to the fold. To celebrate, I decided to size the pattern to fit all ages so I could make a matching set for my mother-in-law and her two grandbabies. Whether you make one beanie or an entire familyâ€™s worth, I hope this beanie brings you as much joy as our long-awaited reunion brought us.
The beanie is worked top down and uses a combination of purl increases and lifted increases to shape the crown. Itâ€™s worked in slipped stitch colourwork to form the honeycomb pattern, then is finished with a wide brim in 1x1 ribbing.
