Ribbing pattern for the beanie:
*Knit 2, Purl 2, repeat after *
Seed Stitch or Moss Stitch Pattern for the beanie: (the pattern is slightly different than for the snood because the beanie needs no chain edge and also because you are not turning your work)
Row 1: *Knit 1, Purl 1, repeat after *
Row 2: *Knit 1, Purl 1, repeat after *
Row 3: *Purl 1, Knit 1, repeat after *
Row 4: *Purl 1, Knit 1, repeat after *
Instructions for the beanie:
Cast on 40 stitches with the size 10 sock knitting needles (10 stitches on each of the 4 needles plus a 5th needle to work with). Work the “Ribbing Pattern” for 8 cm. Then work the “Seed Stitch” pattern for another 10 cm.
Now it is time to decrease:
Row 1: *knit 2 stitches together, repeat after * (20 stitches remaining)
Row 2: Knit all stitches
Row 3: Knit all stitches
Row 4: *knit 2 stitches together, repeat after * (10 stitches remaining)
Row 5: Knit all stitches
Row 6: *knit 2 stitches together, repeat after * (5 stitches remaining)
Then cut your yarn and thread it through a large needle and go through all remaing stitches to close the hole. Sew your thread thoroughly on the wrong side of the beanie. Sew all remaining yarn ends on the wrong side of the beanie.
A lovely set to knit for someone special as a gift.
