Coucou everyone! You know how sometimes designs just seem to come to you and you feel like you’ve created something REALLY SPECIAL? That’s exactly what happened to me with The Kielo Beanie! I had knit this cable + lace combination on a pair of socks earlier this summer, and after posting it on Instagram a follower asked “How about a matching beanie?” and the idea definitely stuck with me. So after coming back from Finland I headed to the yarn shop and got knitting, and in an afternoon I had finished the aht and was beyond excited of how it turned out!
The name of the beanie – Kielo – is the Finnish word for lily of the valley. I love the sound of the word and it’s a perfect match for my beanie name theme, that being it’s also a first name!
This pattern calls for bulky yarn from the lighter side of the category (don’t go for the bulkiest bulky), 6mm/US 10 circular needles and only a few hours of your time! I’d say it’s the perfect design for market prep, Christmas gifts or when you’re looking for a quick & fun project for a Knitflix afternoon.
