Labyrinth is no ordinary striped beanie; the stripes are created with short rows, resulting in off centre stripes which are based on nested circles. The pattern itself is deceptively simple - the only tricky part is the short rows, and as they’re worked in the round and are stacked, you’d want to use the method that gives the most invisible results for you.

Please note that this pattern uses 2 different yarn weights (sports & DK) to achieve a fuller range of sizes. Please refer to pattern information below.
