Visor beanie - twisted stitch knit pattern
The visor beanie e-pattern is an intermediate knit pattern that features twisted or cross stitching on the crown and short row methods for shaping the visor.
Textured diamonds and arrows add a stylish complexity to this baggy cap that will be a favorite with active men and women. Insulating wool keeps you comfortable in all types of weather. Sun visors protect your eyes from the glare of sun and snow.
Comprehensive instructions include a worksheet, stitch definitions and stitch chart. If you are ready for a challenging project you will enjoy making this hat. The crown is knitted in the round and the visor is added by picking up stitches along the edge of the beanie. Short rows on the visor produce comfortable rounded edges that follow the natural curve of the head.
The visor beanie e-pattern is available from Bandana Heads.
You will need 100 grams of DK, 8 ply or worsted weight wool.
