Gepard Candy beanie
Candy is the pattern for a beanie that can be made in a night, but at the same time a great project for stash busting and/or to play around with matching the colours of many strands of yarn. Candy is also a great beginner's project – something not too big on big needles!
This pattern is only sold in combination with yarn. If you want to buy the pattern, we refer you to Gepard Garn where the pattern is available as a download.
125-150 g in total. This beanie is perfect for using leftovers from your yarn stash, as it is worked with multiple strands of yarn. You will need at least 65-70 meters of each strand.
We have used the following yarns from Gepard Garn: A: Wool yarn; 2 strands of Sømandsgarn (2 x 40 g) or Pura Lana (2 x 50 g) or 1 strand of thick yarn as Puno + B: Kid Seta, 3 strands x 70 m + C: 1 strand of HØR. Or you can just use 1-2 strands of a chunky wool yarn, as for the turquoise beanie.
We have used Pura Lana for the brandy coloured beanie and Sømandsgarn for the pink one.
Circular needle or single point needles 9 mm, in Koshitsu bamboo from Seeknit og Gepard.
Approx. 8-8½ sts and 12 rows in stockinette st with needles 9 mm = 10 x 10 cm.
Always make a gauge swatch before starting the actual work. Adjust needle size if necessary.
