Knit Project #8: Sky Blue Striped Beanie

Can't. Stop. Knitting,


Since I forgot to do ribbing on the last hat, I had to quickly make another one to get the ribbing out of my system!


Love the widely spaced out ribbing with chunky yarn. 


And of course there's a pom pom.



Notes:

  • Inspired by The Purl Bee's Merino Hats.
  • Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Sky Blue (20% wool 80% acrylic yarn, super bulky)
  • Circular 16 inch, no. 13 (9mm) bamboo knitting needles
  • Cast on 42, did 6 rows for ribbing and 3 rows of knit before alternating colors. Could be two rows longer but fits fine (toddler size). Didn't use dpns to finish decreases. 
  • unstretched finished measurements: 16 inches in circumference, 7 inches deep
