Striped Cashmere Beanie is worked in one piece from the bottom up. The idea behind this pattern is to use up all of those tiny little scraps of yarn, that everyone of us has. Cashmere is one of the most expensive yarns, so don´t waste it and create a cosy beanie that keeps you warm. Happy knitting!

Cardiff “Cashmere Classic”, 122.0 yards (112.0 m)/25g:
Yarn scraps in different colors. approx. 140m (160m)

3,5mm circular knitting needles (80cm for magic loop) or dpn
4mm circular knitting needles (80cm for magic loop) or dpn

1 stitch marker, tapestry needle

22 stitches = 10cm in St st. (after wet blocking)
Adjust needle sizes to obtain correct gauge if necessary!
I admit, I hate (and I mean HATE it) to knit gauge swatches, but it is so important to check your gauge. Even if you use the same yarn and needle size. We all knit differently, so please make sure to invest some time to find the right needle size for your project. You will end up with a result that has the correct size and that makes you happy
