Ribbed Beanie for husband! Pattern asks for bulky (16st=4").
DH wanted a beanie that is triple thick. So I had to re-tool this patternto accommodate 2 strands of bulky held together with 1 strand of worsted. The gauge is 2.5st=1". It hurt to knit so many strands of thick yarn, especially the decreases for the crown. Ouch.
Yardage used: about 80 yards of each yarn…so about 240 total yds.
Due to the super large gauge, I had to re-tool the cast on amount of stitches or the hat would fit a pumpkin right out of the garden! I cast on 56, giving me a multiple of 8 repeats times 7. The hat is a 6x2 rib. I used a 7mm needle.
