Product description

This striped beanie is great for using up leftover yarn scraps from larger projects. Experiment with different colors – using both solid and self-striping yarns – to create unique, one-of-a-kind hats for your friends and family. The hat’s crown is shaped with four “compass point” decrease lines, which cause the circular stripes of the hat body to take on a square shape. It’s a fun, quick knit that is great for last minute gifts, or whipping up a quick hat for yourself when the temperatures begin to drop.

  • Pattern Updates

    10 January 2013: (Version 3.1): Page 5, under Rearrange Stitches for 2×2 Ribbing, fixed a typo. It now reads “…repeat from * until 1 stitch remains, slip final stitch toR needle…” Also Page 5, a missing needle change was added to read “You have now completed your Tubular Cast On and will begin working your regular 2×2 rib with needle B.” 11 January 2013: (Version 3.2): On the schematic (Page 3), the body of the hat measurement has been corrected to 4″ high through the striping sequence. 18 December 2013: (Version 3.3): Added a missing asterisk on page 4: “Row 1 (Increase Row; RS): *Knit 1, . . .” 30 December 2013: (Versions 3.4): On the previous update, the schematic reverted to an earlier version (showing the body of the hat measurement 5″ instead of 4″) when exported. The correct measurement is 4″ (as in Version 3.2).
