A beanie in an evening or two

When it comes to warmth you can’t beat a beanie. It’s a great insulator, you can stick it in your pocket and set a stylish tone too. You need one or two balls of wool, a pair of needles and a small adornment if you wish. You can make it tight or slouchy, brimmed or brimless, thick or thin. Babies look cute in them and for children you can add eyes, ears and a mouth. Use the colours of your friends’ favourite football team. Add brooches, crocheted flowers, sequins, bows, buttons, ribbon. Your creations are only limited by your imagination.

Start with a classic beanie. I knitted this one as I was watching The Great British Bake-off. My confection is as good as theirs!
