Kaysen Beaded or Knot Beanie - sparkly with beads and sequins or an elegant knot. Uses just 1 skein of yarn!
You decide the look! A simple slouchy beanie, an elegant knot to top the beanie or add sparkles with beads and sequins. I’ve always wanted a beanie with a little bling.
Kaysen is knit in the round with a fingering weight yarn, wool-silk mix, held doubled. Any fingering weight, wool-silk mix yarn can be substituted. Please adjust needle size to get gauge.
The pattern and design are simple and straight forward. Complete photo tutorials are included on how to attach the tassels, tie the knot and add the beads. Note that the tassel is not removable.
Great as a gift or maybe something for you, I do hope you enjoy making Kaysen while stashbusting or using that 1 pretty skein of yarn that you have been eyeing!
