Sabeanie Beanie

As I mentioned in this post, I've been trying to knit quite a few Sabeanie Beanies so that I've got some for Christmas presents and some for sale.  I just finished another one which I knit extra-large, yet it has enough versatility to fit my 5-year-old Miss Boo.

I love the way the ribbing creates a star pattern at the top.  So fun! 

For this particular Sabeanie I used one skein of Kroy FX sock yarn.  I absolutely LOVE the way this came out.  The yarn is soft and squishy and not at all itchy.  Best yet, it's machine washable/dryable, something which is a must for hygienically challenged men.  (And it's a relatively cheap $3.50/skein).
