Black beanie

The yarn I have used here is called moda vera AMBRUNI

The tension on the ball band suggests 6.5mm needles at 14 stitches x 19 rows for a 10 inch square. 
So I have used 7.0mm circ needles.

This fits 60cm plus head snug or a loosely fit slouchy beanie for any size (pictured is 56cm - my sized head, no model in my vicinty at time of picture taking)

The Pattern:
Cast on 80 stitch loosely plus 1 to join in the round.
Rib 4 x 4 x 12 rows. ie knit 4 purl 4, etc.
Stocking stitch 8 inches from beginning, which is knit every row in the round on circular needles.
Decrease rows
Knit 8 knit 2 together, repeat
Knit row
Knit 7, knit 2 together repeat
Until 8 stitches remain
Pull end through all and fasten off.
Sew in ends and block if you want too. I generally don't.

The Pictures:
Sunshiny day towards the front of beanie, hair down.
Same beanie, hair up, piccy towards the back of beanie.
