Day 5 in the Knit You Advent Calendar 2014: Merry Berry

Every now and then you just need to knit a simple beanie - just like this one! There's absolutely nothing fancy about this, but it's definitely something super useful to have around. And you can never have enough beanies... Right?!

Merry Berry

This easy-peasy beanie will keep you and your family warm this winter. Perfect for gift knitting also: it's both quick and easy – and a great way to use some of the remaining small yarn remains you happen to have around. Add a pompom in highlight color to make things even more fun!

Yarn: 1 skein of Sock by Malabrigo Yarn (100% merino; 440 yards [402 meters] per 100 g) and additional contrasting color yarn for the pompom. Approx. 180 (200, 240) yards [165 (180, 220) meters] of fingering weight yarn. Sample is knit in colorway Tiziano Red, in size adults small.

Needles: US 1½ [2.5 mm] and US 2½ [3 mm].

Finished brim circumference: 18 (20, 22)” / 46 (50, 54) cm.
