Echo Beanie Pattern
This super bulky ‘Echo Beanie’ is a quick and beginner friendly project. And it is much less complicated than it looks! This beanie uses slipped stitches to get those bold vertical lines. Since you will be alternating between two colors, you only knit with one color per round. I really loved seeing the two vertical columns knit up in contrasting colors. Color B seems to mirror the stitches from color A, hence the ‘Echo’ name.
I have included a few notes about sizing modifications and using more or less than two colors. Feel free to get creative with bold colors or even use lots of colors for a scrappy version. Also, with the two color
version, you will have enough yarn to make two beanies. I like to make the second one in reverse color order.
