To complete the collection of Lydie accessories, here is the beanie! Knitted in-the-round from the bottom to the top, my Lydie beanie is first worked in 2/2 ribbing and then in the characteristic cables of the Lydie collection.
The pattern provides the option to knit the beanie in two different lengths, one for a snug fit and the other for a longer fit.
SKILLS LEVEL: Intermediate
The Sizes 1 (2) 3 (4) are based on the actual head circumference, measured at its widest point, that is, at the level of the ears :
1 : 46-50 cm (18-19.5in)
2 : 51-54 cm (20-21.25in)
3 : 55-58 cm (21.5-22.75in)
4 : 59-61 cm (23-24in)
The final dimensions of the beanie will be 8-10cm (3 to 4 in) smaller (negative ease).
