The bell rings and you take off running as soon as you reach the outside door… time for RECESS! There’s a chill in the air, so don’t forget your favorite hat. One mini skein gradient package from Three Irish Girls is all you need to work this cozy topper. Knit in stockinette stitch in the round, this beanie can be knit in just one sitting. Elongated tuck stitches are an easy substitute for colorwork, and photo tutorials within the pattern will guide you through the process. Don’t let cold ears spoil your favorite time of day… everyone needs Recess!
