More Beauty of Windows …

To continue on with my love of architecture and stained glass windows, this is the beanie to go with the hugely popular Stately Windows Cowl.

In the UK, we are so lucky to have so many historic buildings and churches. The one thing they all have in common are their stunning Stately Windows.

What will shine through in your beanie? Will it be a vibrant frame or brightly coloured glass?

Working in the round, you will work a 6 stitch corrugated rib to form the brim and then using a clear combination of knits, purls and slip stitches you will build a beautiful wall of windows. Written in full with handy progress check boxes, so you can keep a visual track of where you are.

I have formatted this pattern in such a way that you should only need to print page 3 & 4 (double sided).

You will find reference charts on page 5.

Saving the planet one unprinted page at a time.

If you like the look of this pattern it would be a huge help to me if you would give it a like as I have an overflowing notebook of ideas and this helps me understand what to work on next. Your support of my little dream is so appreciated. Every ‘like’ helps and it’s a known fact I do a tiny happy dance each time I get a notification. I am a terrible dancer!
