Spooky Night Beanie Pattern
This worsted weight ‘Spooky Night Beanie” uses three colors of yarn to create a fun fair isle design that is perfect for chilly October nights. I have included written instructions for both the brim and decrease sections and a chart for the main fair isle portion. When choosing colors, I suggest using high contrasting colors to really show off the ghosts and bats. Feel free to switch up the brim colors too, purple is also a great option.
Using US 8 (5.0mm) needles:
18 sts and 25 rows make a 4” (10cm) square in stockinette stitch, unblocked.
20 sts and 23 rows make a 4” (10cm) square in main fair isle pattern, feel free to reference this gauge once the main portion of the hat is established.
