Number 9 Beanie: Friday Finished Object

This beanie is for my oldest. Yarn is Valley Superwash DK in (starting at the brim) Classic Navy, Eggplant, Steel Grey, Squash, Forest, Burgundy, and Blue Mist. Superwash so if it gets thrown in with laundry, it will not felt.

My stitch gauge is 22 stitches to 4 inches on size 6 needles. I used size 4 needles for the ribbed brim. I cast on 100 stitches, knit 9 rounds of ribbing, then 9 rounds of each color until I reached 9 inches in length, maintaining the color order for the stripes. Then I began a five point decrease for the crown, starting with knit 18, knit 2 together, every other row for a stripe, then every row until 5 stitches were left. I won’t bother writing out the crown, but if you want that, leave me a comment. This is really more of a recipe than a pattern.

It looks like I missed a round of Steel Grey. Oops!

I hope this beanie fits and is loved. The last beanie was a little short, but gets worn. My children have big heads (for their big brains).

  1. Your DK yarn Beanie Recipe is so easy to remember! I love it and how it turns out. Could be fun to use up DK yarn scraps, too. JoJo seems to be saying…”I wouldn’t do that, if I were you.”
    I have been making more of your GF Zucchini Bread lately and freezing it to have on hand. I enjoy it toasted with a cup of hot cocoa.

  2. That’s a beautiful beanie! Gotta love Jojo approved posts. 🙂 And recipes. Since I’ve gone through a few patterns and videos for my first socks and now know how they differ, I ought to write a recipe for possible future sock knitting — thanks for the inspiration.
