This knitting pattern PDF is for the Link Beanie. This striking beanie is worked in a graphic stranded colourwork pattern that forms a linking pattern of circle motifs.

The colourwork pattern is worked over a 22-stitch, 12-round repeat. The colourwork pattern can be worked from the chart or the written instructions. There are two charts provided - one with a dark background and one with a light background. Work from the chart that matches your colours as it will be easier to follow the pattern.

It is knitted from the bottom-edge up in rounds, beginning with a 1 x 1 rib band. The beanie can be made with a turn-back brim or a 4cm-wide brim.

The Link Beanie requires intermediate knitting skills.
