Poppy Beanies

I have meant to sit down for some time and share the projects that I have made for Christmas gifts.  I decided to make this easier on me and you by showing each project in a separate post.


I made two poppy beanies for gifts this year.  The pattern is free with sign up for Knitting Daily and can be found here.  The pattern is to be knit flat and sewn together, but I modified mine to be knit in the round.  I don’t like stitching if I don’t have to.


If you are interested in knitting it in the round you can follow my notes in ravelry found here.

Because I knit stripes in the round I used the jogless stripes technique.  You can find several sites or youtube videos that explain jogless stripes.  I used the technique described here.  I think the stripes lined up quite well.


In January I also made another Poppy Beanie, but this time it was the solid version.


I’m thinking that I need to add a pink ribbon to the eyelet row to finish off this hat.
