Top Down Pinwheel Beanie
This hat is knit in the round from the top down. It was designed to co-ordinate with the ‘Pinwheel Sweater for children’.
I have written the pattern for normal DK (8ply) gauge and have included instructions on how to custom fit the beanie for your own gauge and head circumference measurement. A variety of different weight yarns could be used, but DK (8ply) to Bulky (12ly) would probably give the best effect.
