A Pair of Beanies

ILHIKER's picture

Amid all my family upheaval, I have managed to finish two matching hats from some superwash merino wool that a friend of my gave me. Thanks, Lou! The hank was 280 yards/4oz, 5-6 sts/in on US 4 & 5. They turned out well and will make wonderful Christmas gifts.

I wrote an article about decreasing using circular needles using this hat.
You can find it at:

Great looking hats, Mark. I love how the decreases at the top that give the pattern that they do. Nice job!

Thank you to for the pattern--- we are in the depths of winter here in NZ so I will use up left over wool to make a few of these hats for friends!

You are most welcome Kiwi.

You are most welcome Kiwi.
These hats are a great way to use up leftovers. The skein I used was 280 yards/4.0 grams. If my algebra is correct, I used all but 24.5 yards (0.35 oz) for a total of 255.5 yards on both hats, or 127.75 yards per hat.

Enjoy the pattern!
