Beanie Pattern

Our neat fitting little beanie with its jaunty pom-pom was knitted to match the Boy's Blazer & Pants Pattern. We used P & B Superior Double Knitting, Patonised. By being careful to use this wool, you can be sure of the same satisfactory results with these instructions. You will need: Approx. 1 oz. Main Colour (B) and small quantity of Contrasting Colour (A). (both sizes). Two No. 9 and two No. 8 Queen Bee Knitting Needles.
