yellow beanie

When I posted this photo of my granddaughter digging in the sandpit I realised I hadn't shared the pattern for the yellow beanie. So... here it is.

This is a simple pattern suitable for beginner knitters and perfect to keep your little one snug on a cold and windy day.

4 mm and 4.5 mm needles

Gauge 5 sts per inch on US #7 or 4.5mm needles 

With 4 mm needles cast on 76 sts

Change to 4.5 mm needles and work 28 rows in stocking stitch.
Begin crown working in garter stitch (all rows knit)
(K3, k2 tog) to last st, k1 (61sts)
Knit the next 3 rows
(K2, k2 tog) to end (46 sts)
Knit the next 3 rows

Break off yarn and thread through the remaining sts.
