After my difficult time with the last beanie I knitted I thought I should remind myself that I could knit a beanie without a great deal of trouble. I went back to a pattern that I had knitted a couple of times before and used up some wool that I had in my stash. This is the end result and was knitted while I watched the cricket.
The pattern is a free one and you can find it here. It is a lovely warm beanie as it is double thickness over the ears.
