North Wind Beanie Pattern
This super bulky weight ‘North Wind Beanie’ uses two colors of yarn to create a fun fair isle design with an extra cozy feel. The stranded colorwork adds an extra layer of warmth and makes this hat a great accessory to wear in the low winter temperatures.
I have included written instructions for both the brim and decrease sections. There is a chart to follow for the colorwork body section. Before beginning, you will want to choose your colors A & B. Color A is the starting color at the brim and color B with finish up the crown. When choosing colors, I suggest using high contrasting colors to really show off the design.
And, the best thing about this pattern is if you use one of the suggested yarns, you will have enough yardage to make 2 beanies!
