Level 2: Can knit, purl, increase, decrease, work in the round, and are familiar with double point needles.

This modern, nordic-style ribbed beanie is uniquely knit from the top down. Its sleek lines are achieved by casting on at the crown and adjusting needle sizes for the perfect overall contour and fit. Last, it is finished off at the brim using the clean and very elastic Invisible Cast-off method.

Learn these techniques and see your future knitting endeavors go from average to awesome! Use these same sleek skills for sweater necklines, hems & cuffs, and even sock knitting, toe-up style!
