A fast knit that is worked inside out, because I prefer knitting to purling (and there are clearly more purl stitches on the RS). It can be considered reversible - if you’re being meticulate when making up and hide all endings as good as you can manage!

Iโ€™ve knitted this twice. The first one is the one in the picture above and it turned out so lovely โ€“ but the yarn had too much ease and after a couple of months wearing, my husband looked as if he was wearing a mushroom on his head… Iโ€™ve recalculated and knitted a new, tighter version, hoping that this is going to fit better in the long run.

Material: 1-2 x 50g balls of Marks&Kattens Eco ull or 1 skein of Hjertegarn Incawool. Make sure to use rather bulky Aran wool (16.5sts per 10cm/4” on 5.5mm needles) to get the look, fit and warmth of this beanie. Read the labels and check gauge!

If you’re facing a hard winter, you might even have to line the beanie with a 6cm/1.5” wide fleece-lining to keep the polar-wind off your ears :)

Needles: 5 mm DPN’s or a circular needle, short enough to make a beanie. If you knit on a circular needle, you’ll need the DPN’s (or use a magic loop)when decreasing.
Sizes: One size. Fits heads between 55-60 cm

Happy knitting :)
