my inner viking beanie
My Inner Viking beanie is a fitted hat with simple but striking color work. It’s worked bottom up in the round.
Some knitters reported that the rib was too loose as written. I would therefore advise to use smaller needles (US#3 in my case) and/or use twisted rib (ktbl, p1) instead of the usual (k1,p1) rib.
This hat fits the best with negative ease, so 2” of negative ease have already been incorporated into the pattern.
The beanie is offered in the following sizes:
18”(20”, 22”, 24”) head circumference
120(150, 200, 250) yards of MC
35(35, 40, 50) yards of CC
