National Pride is a pattern designed to allow you to show allegiance to your wonderful country, in a subtle and modern manner.

This seamless pattern comes in 8 sizes (from small newborn to large adult head), and in 3 yarn weights (4ply/fingering, 8ply/dk, and 10ply/worsted).

National Pride is a beanie knit in the round from the brim upwards. The brim is worked in 1x1 rib, followed by the body very simply in stocking stitch.
After the knitting is complete, the knitter works 3 columns of duplicate stitch running from within the ribbing all the way to the crown of the knit, using colours from their favourite countries flag.
