Seed Stitch Beanie ❄️⛄️ made with ChicSheepYarn! It is a free and speedy pattern with a 2 stitch repeat. It is perfect for #beginnerknitters. The trick here is that it is worked up by holding 2 strands of yarn together with large gauge needles. The pattern is so simple that you can totally multi-task with whatever TV show you’re currently bingeing on. Promise! And, it will make for the easiest holiday gift! Enjoy!

 Pattern Notes:

This pattern is worked from the band ribbing up to top, using two strands of yarn at the same time. It is a simple pattern that only uses knit an purl stitches so it works up quickly! The pattern works up as a circular tube with the top open to be gathered/cinched closed to create the texture at the top. The pattern can be increased/decreased with multiples of 2 sts.
