This slouchy and squishy beanie comes with a doubled brim and a modern graphical design, which will keep you warm even in the coldest winter.
The pattern can be easily memorized and working with two colours makes it a fun and rewarding project to knit.

Skill: The beanie is worked in the round from the bottom up and the brim will be doubled up before starting the colourwork.
The colourwork is a good way to get confident in stranded knitting, for both beginners and experienced knitters. The floats are very short, making it easy to keep an even tension throughout.
