3 + 1

The good things come in threes. Or at least I need to make them in threes.

Wanted to knit some beanies for kids (again). This time took up a Mesi-pattern by Villapeikko (Ravelry link).

Mesi beanie

Yes, it’s a fun pattern to knit, and it looks very nice. Kids love it.

Blue one (Ravelry link) is made of Novita Nalle Aloe Vera (75% wool, 25% nylon), which was a nice yarn to knit, due to aloe vera. Brown one (Ravelry link) is also made of Novita Nalle, brown yarn is the regular kind, off-white is with aloe vera. Needle size 3,5 mm.

The honeycomb pattern on the side of the beanie is a lot easier to knit than it looks. I was pleasantly surprised the first time around (in Pikkuveli cardi).

But the most fun is the top of the beanie with the strands of colours.

The third Mesi (Ravelry link) I was requested to make needed to be knitted of Novita 7 Veljestä (75% wool, 25% nylon, but a thicker yarn than Nalle), since our local store had run out on blacks and reds in Nalle. Continued knitting with size 3,5 mm needles.

The beanie turned out ok, but it’s not as nice and comfortable as the ones knitted of Nalle.

Did I mention kids love these?

I have knitted a beanie for myself, too. (Please, do note this carefully. I’m not making a habit of this.)

Käänteinen (Ravelry link) is a reversible rib cap. The pattern was published in Ulla 2/08.

I made mine (Ravelry link) out of an old skein of Novita Nalle and with 3,0 mm needles. Had 160 stitches to start with.

This is one nice beanie, and excellent for the purpose it was made: outdoor excercise. It is not too thick, but still feels warm.

  1. Voi hyvää päivää vaan! Sunnuntaineulojan silmät pyörii päässä täällä neuleiden ihmemaassa. Ei riitä yksi käynti, ei kaksi… :)
