Happy New Year to everyone! Here I am again with a new pattern Stylish Diana beanie knitted with stockinette stitch. If you follow my Instagram account you might have already seen a matching knit mittens on straight needles that I published earlier. I believe this is one of the best knit sets I have ever made. You are right if you think it looks simple, but it is warm, cozy and super soft to wear. It is a perfect set for business ladies who do not like cables and bulky knit accessories and want to stay comfy and elegant during those chilly days.

Knitting materials and tools:

<> 16” Circular Knitting Needles or DPN 3.25 mm (UK 10/US 3).

<> Long mink wool – 75% wool, 25% nylon. Café au lait color: 50 grams – 350 m per skein – in total less than 1 ball

Hello! Do you have any guidance on how to adjust the pattern if I cast on 56 stitches instead of 88? Thank you!

Hi. Go on knitting until crown. Divide all stitches in 4 parts: 14-14-14-14. Make decreases in the same way as I did. For ex Round 1: [k1, k2tog, k9, skpo] – repeat 4 times. And so on.
