Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – especially when they’re made of cozy wool and in your favourite colors to keep your ears warm.
This adult sized beanie – with option for a slouchy hat – is knitted seamlessly in rounds from brim to crown. The skills needed are: to make knit and purl stitches in the round, to cross stitches without a cable needle and to make decreases. The pattern is suitable for advanced or ambitious beginners.
Two strands of fingering weight yarn in different colors knitted together will create a new heathered color shade. The main color is used throughout the pattern. Two contrasting colors – each worked together with the main color – offer the opportunity to let your creativity flow and find unexpectedly beautiful color combinations. Let’s be playful!
