COLOURWORK BEANIE PATTERN
Knit this awesome, snug beanie in a clever colourwork stitch! If you haven't tried colourwork before this is a great intro. We use Woolstok from Blue Sky Fibers - a two-ply yarn in a beautiful range of colours from the highest quality Peruvian Highland sheep. Extremely soft and rich in character with excellent stitch definition.
Adult: Approximately 22cm wide x 20cm tall

Please note there will be leftover yarn, enough to knit a childs beanie or save it and make another in a different ccolourway then knit a multi colour one.
Use only the yarn stated, other yarns will give different results. Quantities are approximate as they can vary between knitters.
