The « walk the line » beanie is a friendly pattern that can be completed quickly in one sitting using yarn leftovers. The color combinations options are endless and it is a great stash buster!
This pattern has been written to be worked in the round from the bottom up. It begins with a knit 2 purl 2 ribbing followed by fantasy stitches using an alternance of the main and complementary yarns.
For this pattern, you will need to be familiar with knitting in the round and changing colors.
