Nothing says ‘classic’ like a simple striped beanie. Worked in the round from the top down, it has single-row stripes with the yarn carried up the inside to minimize ends to be woven in. It’s sure to look amazing in any color combination, is suitable for men and women, and is quick to make – meaning that if you have a gift you still need to make, you might have just found it.
