Double Swirl Beanie

“Pump out a hat, you’ll feel better after.” – Chantal of Knitatude

Whenever I’m in a knitting funk, I recall these wise words. She’s not wrong either. If you have a number of wips happening but don’t have the drive to work on any of them, make a hat. Or a headband. Just piece that is going to give you pretty instant gratification so you feel like you’ve accomplished something.

And that is where the idea for the Double Swirl Beanie came from. I always have multiple wips but I was feeling bleh about knitting and felt a need to stash bust and just work something up. I grabbed my skein of Briar Rose from Handmade Home Fibers and a random tonal pink that matched and looked through one of my stitch books.
Upon finding a texture pattern that would look good with solid or variegated yarn I got to work.

Also in my collection was the most perfect deep magenta pom from Rose and Purl.
It was named the Double Swirl because of the double stranding and the texture creates a swirl design. I also did a double brim because they are just so much more cozy.

You can find the pattern here.

Happy Knitting!
