Beanie Friday

Guys, check out the beanie I knitted this week. My youngest son, Ryan, is loving it! Never mind it is 97 F outside... This pattern is so fun to make, very simple, and fits teens and adults very well.

It calls for two contrasting yarns which I happened to have in my [yarn] stash. Nothing too fancy, just a handful of cable twists to add charm to the beanie.

I used Deborah Norville's Collection "Everyday" for Premier - soft with cool colors. I have no idea what the gray yarn is called but it was a good match. It was such a relaxing and fun experience that I have another one in the works...

Same yarn, different colors. Oh, yes, I found this Alphie beanie pattern by Violette Lovelace in the book Knit Beanies - Easy to Make, Fun to Wear:

I mailed this first beanie this morning to my brother-in-law in Brazil (Shhh... don't tell Ryan), but will be making a few more of this same pattern as Christmas gifts. Then, I will move on to different ones such as these: 

Aren't they gorgeous? Yes, the beanies, too!

The other patterns in Knit Beanies are beautiful as well, so this book is a keeper. The instructions are easy to follow and if I wasn't sure about something I just had to look at the end of the book in the Techniques and Abbreviations Glossary. Great reference for future projects!

I am so glad to be knitting again! Have a great weekend,

  1. I do not know how to knit. I just learned how to crochet. I have made myself 4 lopsided wash clothes that I am insanely proud of. However I would love to make myself a hat like that pea pod one on the baby in the last picture. I look forward to seeing the others you make.


I am so glad you are taking the time to leave a comment. It is always nice to hear from you!
