I originally made one of these beanies for a friend of mine as a Christmas present. A few years later, he still loves it! The repetition of the Basket Weave pattern will solidify your knitting and purling muscle memory!The wool yarn is extremely durable and very easy to care for. The knit and purl pattern used is simple enough for knitters that are venturing into more difficult in the round knitting while still being engaging enough for an experienced knitter. The knitter also has a choice of creating a snug fitting beanie or a beanie that slouches. No matter the type of beanie the knitter chooses to make, the garment will provide warmth and fold to fit easily in a coat pocket.
