This Scandinavian style beanie is a great way to begin your happy colorwork knitting pursuits! It begins with small easy to memorize pattern repeats. If you decide to make the slouchy beanie, you progress to a more challenging “kross og kringle” (cross and circle) pattern common to traditional sweaters found in Norway’s Setesdal Valley. Advanced colorwork knitters could work the pattern in reverse and begin with a challenge!
With just two skeins of Harrisville Highland you can make both hats!
My students may recognize this as the hat we make in my Scandinavian Colorwork Class.
