Use up your stash with this five color beanie. Small amounts of each color mean you can make a couple beanies from just one skein of each color.

The intricate pattern may look difficult, but it’s actually quite easy.

Using the stranded technique, this beanie will fit all ages and can be made in all colors. The one pictured is just a touch of the combinations you can create.

Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don’t know how to do stranded color work? Don’t worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section (13 pages!!!) that will not only teach you how to create this kind of color work but also covers all of this:

  1. Color Changing throughout the beanie including at the round join.

  2. Catching the yarn to create short floats.

  3. How to keep your yarn untangled.

  4. Photo tutorial of stitches used on beanie brim.

  5. How to keep your seam straight on your beanie.

  6. How to make a magic adjustable loop.

The beanie includes full written instructions as well as a color chart for the stranded portion.
