One of the great things about being a traveller is that you help people out - you trade skills or items or just do ‘stuff’ as a favour. It’s how commune living works. Money is tight and time has the higher value, so any amount of help is always appreciated and returned.
A friend gave us some great items for our wee baba Aran when we were in Holland, and in return I gifted Hats for her two children. Her daughter was easy - I had a big bag of suitable girly Hats, however her son was more difficult.
So I knitted him a beanie, this beanie.
This is a top down ribbed beanie, with notes for adapting for different sizes and gauges. Ideal for adding stripes or a brim. A great, quick knit for the men folk!
