Detailed step-by-step instruction with lots of pictures and a tutorial.
Vinnje Beanie is a classic ribbed beanie in fisherman’s rib for the whole family. It can be worked in 6 sizes.
For a perfect fit of Vinnje Beanie, I start with a highly elastic cast on.
You have the choice between two versions:
You can work Vinnje Beanie with or without a brim.
A tip: without the brim, the beanie fits perfect-ly under a bicycle helmet.
Vinnje Beanie is a reversible beanie and looks great with both the “knobby” side, as well as the classic fisherman’s rib to the out-side.
The beautiful, accentuated tip of the beanie is formed with double decreases slanted to the right and left that give the beanie a very spe-cial look.
Vary Vinnje Beanie in your own personal way!
You can knit it with stripes, work the brim in contrasting colour or knit it completely out of stash yarn for a unique look.
