Baby Beeanie


A sweet little stripy textured baby beanie pattern, complete with a pompon, is the perfect way to keep a wee one’s head warm. The bee stitch makes soft yarns feel even softer and makes the stripes appear to dissolve into one another. A pompon on top completes the cuteness. The one in the sample is 35mm across.

Written for two colours, this beanie may also be knit in one colour.

The sample is knitted in White Gum Wool 4 ply in natural, and Augustbird’s Baby Fairy Wren 4 ply.



Baby, head circumference of 35.5cm OR 14”
