The Luke Beanie



Good morning all and welcome to day 17! We sure are ploughing through the days now.
Today's beanie is a fairly simple one, but also a great introduction to colour changes if you are unfamiliar with them. The Luke beanie will fit a baby of 24 weeks gestation, and is a breeze to work up. You can use a low contrast second colour for a subtle hat, or go for something bold and high contrast to make a statement.

The Luke Beanie

Sized To Fit:
24 Weeks Gestation

Measurements:
9.5cm total height
11cm across the brim

You Will Need:
3mm hook
5ply/sport weight yarn.
I used 4Seasons Marvel 1077 Green

Special notes: Colour changes work best when you complete the stitch you are doing using the colour that comes next. You can see an example of this here.

1. Into a magic ring dc 10 times, join. (10)

2. ch3, dc in the same stitch, 2dc in each stitch around, join. (20)

3. ch3, dc in the same stitch, *dc in the next stitch, 2dc in the next stitch*, repeat around, join. (30)

4. ch3, dc in the same stitch, *dc in the next 2 stitches, 2dc in the next stitch*, repeat around, join. (40)

5-8. ch3, dc in each stitch around, join.

Colour change rounds. Carry the unused colour behind the stitches.

9. With green, ch2, hdc in the next stitch, with white, hdc in the next stitch, with green, hdc in the next 2 stitches, *with green hdc in the next 2 sitches, with white hdc in the next stitch, with green hdc in the next 2 stitches* repeat around, join

10. With green ch2, with white hdc in the next 3 stitches, with green hdc in the next stitch, *with green hdc in the next stitch, with white hdc in the next 3 stitches, with green hdc in the next stitch* repeat around, join.

11. With white, ch2, hdc in each stitch around, join.

End off, weave in all tails.
