Sabeanie

Corny, huh? I wanted to merge the island Saba with "beanie", because that's where I knit this.

Okay, when you have to start explaining a pun, then you know it's really a groaner.

Anyway, I noticed a dearth of fingering-weight beanies on Ravelry, so I decided to come up with my own pattern. I really like the way this turned out!

It's not too hot to wear in the summer, and it only used up about 235 yards of yarn, so you could squeeze two Sabeanies out of your usual skein of sock yarn - a great bargain!

I'll try to get the pattern written up soon and put it on my Ravelry and DutchOrchid Design page. If you really want the pattern sooner, let me know, and I'll send you a test-knit pattern.

Very cool...Nathan would LOVE one for christmas. He wears those all the time. I would go for solid grey or dark brown or something, tho. :)
