Perfect, knit-in-a-night gifts for all of my daughters’ teachers who have recently had babies:
Pattern: Beehive beanie
Knit on US 6s 16″ circular (then reduced to 12″ circular, then finally dpns for the last couple of rounds)
Size: 12-24 months
I used stash yarn for all three hats; the grey beanie is knit in Madelinetosh Tosh DK (100% superwash merino wool), color Graphite. I ran out right at the end, so I used comparable stash yarn to finish off the top (just a shade darker, which I kind of like). I didn’t want the pointy top to this hat, so I knit to round 74, then immediately did the final two decreases and then cut the thread and ran it through the remaining stitches. I used the same mods to knit the pink beanie, also in Madelinetosh Tosh DK (color Molly Ringwold).
For the blues beanie, I followed the pattern exactly, and used leftover blues in Tanis Yellow Label DK.Pin It
