A spectacular Beanie style hat knitted using rainbow self striping yarn.
A fun way to stay warm this winter!
This knit and felt beanie hat is knitted seamlessly using double ended needles.
The fantastic yarn will create wonderful random stripes as you knit.

The beanie is felted by simply washing!!
The pure wool fibers shrink and matt into felt just like a washday sweater disaster!

My clear and detailed pattern includes –

Full line by line, knitting pattern,
Detailed instructions to guide you through felting and shaping your hat to a custom fit.

Felted Size (Adults).
Small 50 - 54cm
Medium 55 - 59cm
Large 60 - 65cm Hats can be adjusted to fit perfectly during felting

Yardage:-
Small 2 x 50gm ball (100m Filzwolle)

Recommended Yarn
Lana Grossa Feltro Spectra- 2 x 50gm/50m

Alternative yarns-
Rico Creative Filz print, Lana Grossa Feltro Spectra and Schoeller Und Stahl Filzi all produce lovely results

If using a substitute yarn your project may felt to a different size, you may also have problems with the knitting felting shut. This can be avoided by putting plastic bags inside the project during felting.

SUITABLE FOR- Confident beginners or Intermediate knitters.
This pattern uses circular knitting- I Have created a 2 needle version β€œSimple Felted Beanie Hat” if you would prefer to knit your hat using stocking stitch and a single seam
