Beanie for Isabel

My granddaughter Isabel asked if I'd knit her a beanie for upcoming Winter. Of course, I'd be glad to. I had a skein in my stash that my sister-in-law bought for me when I was on holiday in Suffolk that was just the thing for the job. It's such pretty wool that I thought a plain pattern would be best to show it off. I used 5 mm double pointed needles to knit it in the round. I'm just waiting to hear whether Isabel would like to have a pompon on top, or not.


  1. She should love this! It's so cheery!

  2. Really love the color and I love pompoms but the kids around here do not :) Very cute!

  3. Beautiful hat and colour perfect for a little girl

  4. Handspun in Suffolk!! - gorgeous. Is it herdwick? or merino?

    1. It's merino. Part of the colour effect was achieved by having one ply that is superwash which takes the dye differently to the other plies. The lady who dyed it is a friend of my s-I-l's.
