If you purchase the individual Magda Beanie, you will automatically receive the Magda Slouchy Pattern as well. The two are different enough to deserve separate pattern status, but close enough that I am offering them at a two-for-one price. If you have already purchased the Magda Slouchy, take a look in your library - it’s been updated!

You can also purchase the Magda Cowl and Magda Slouchy & Beanie in the Magda Accessories Ebook for $7.50. That set has also been updated to include the Beanie for those who previously purchased, so check your library for the new pattern!

The pattern is part of the Primo Knits Collection, which includes 6 designs worked in various weights of The Plucky Knitter’s Primo yarns. If you have purchased any of the patterns released prior to the Primo Collection release (Asher, or any of the designs in the Magda Accessories collection), the Primo Knits Collection will be discounted by the amount previously paid automatically at check out. If you have any difficulties at checkout, please contact me.

The Magda Beanie is the third design in my Magda series. The sample is shown in The Plucky Knitter Primo Aran in the “Red Haven” colorway. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters, with basic knowledge of lace and cabling. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
