Chunky beanie slouchy style

Here's another beanie pattern. Its so cold outside. It's winter again already.Cheer me up, show me what you have been up to...

The yarn I have used here is called Moda vera KALD

The tension on the ball band suggests 10mm needles 8 stitches x 12 rows for a 4 inch square.

The Pattern
Using 12 mm needles.
This one fits my head size of medium at 56cm comfortably. I regularly use a larger needle size for a more drapier knit. If there is such a word? :)

Cast on 36 stitches not too tight.
Knit 4 rows of rib. 2 knit, 2 purl, etc.
Work in stocking stitch, knit one row, purl the next row etc, until work measures 20cm. This should leave enough yarn to decrease and sew together.
Knit 3, knit 2 together repeat.
Purl.Knit 2, knit 2 together repeat.
Purl.Knit 1, knit 2 together repeat.
Purl.Knit 2 together.
Pull end through and sew up seams.
Place on head and pull back down and poke point into back of beanie.
Hopefully you'll have enough yarn in one ball. I found some short balls which made for a normal size beanie.

The slouchy style beanie is a lovely fit. I'm upto making another one in purple and will post pics when I am finished..
