This thread in the NewNorwegian group is intended to address issues related to this pattern, including how to eliminate the seam and why the ribbing is turned inside-out before starting the colourwork.

It’s already November but the ground is still bare and Skadi the Norse goddess wishes for snow.

This beanie adapts motifs found in Sami mittens. It is knitted in the round. Due to the stitch count of the motif, there is a seam stripe at the back (as shown in the second photo).

The yardage breakdown is as follows:
175 m / 190 yards fingering weight yarn in main colour
45 m / 49 yards fingering weight yarn in contrast colour

For matching mittens, check out Snow for Skadi.

I’m experimenting this year with a pay-what-you-will model. If you have made this pattern and would like to show your appreciation, please consider buying me some virtual coffee! Thanks for your support!
