Beanie Mine is simple and quick to knit.  I love a classic beanie.  I think the shape is universally flattering, and a well-fitting hat is like a hug for your head.  I designed this one to have a simple stripe in a contrasting color.  It is a traditional pattern that works for men, women, boys and girls.  Beanie Mine is a very close fitting beanie.  It features a 1x1 rib and a wonderfully dense stockinette fabric made by holding one strand of DK-weight yarn together with one strand of lace-weight silk mohair.  The hat has 1-2” of negative ease.  Choose a base color with a matching mohair yarn, and a mohair yarn in a contrasting color.  Mix it up further by choosing several different shades of contrasting mohair.
