I made this beanie the first time out of some leftover KnitPicks yarn I had laying around. My hubby, who has a bald head, gets incredibly cold, and is always begging me for new hats. I whipped this one up in a couple of hours. Inspired by how fast and cheap it was to make, I made a whole bunch of them as Christmas gifts! The pattern calls for a skein of Wool of the Andes Coal and Wool of the Andes Tulip, but you can use any Wool of the Andes scrap that you have laying around for the contrasting stripe!

Color used in the sample is no longer available; we have made a similar color suggestion in the yarn calculator below.

Easy knit pattern, but I cannot get the decrease rows to work down to eight stitches according to the pattern. What am I missing???????

I knit this pattern for my first winter hat, using Swish Worsted in Bordeaux and black for the contrast stripe. The directions were easy enough to follow that I got brave and made it a bit longer for extra ear and forehead coverage. Minnesota winters are COLD! This is a great pattern for beginners and anyone in search of a quick, simple knit. Although the model is a woman, this hat works just as well on a man.
