Beehive beanies

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.
