Beanies are everywhere these days for good reason - a great shape on almost every head, and this one fits even the biggest Mouse noggin with a little room to spare - not slouchy, but also not too snug. Holding two strands of Rowan Kid Classic on larger needles makes this cushy, soft topper a speedy knit. Done in no time!

And you’ll have lots of fun playing with color combinations. Keep the colors close in value like our sample - creamy and pale grey, or play with higher contrast for more pop. Over twenty shades to choose from!

Find the free pattern (and page after page of other entertainments) in our Winter 2016 Mailer (it’s on page 5).
