I made the 1984 beanie in time for Halloween… and I’ve been admiring it all of Wovember perched upon my dress form, which she is very happy about. She’s been wondering where she was, and now she can see. I thought my perfect model for this beanie (you know who you are) would be visiting sooner so I’d have a fashiony photo for you… but I just could not wait…and so it will now be a gift for her for next month’s holiday season. Because…as you know…EYEBALLS ARE NOT JUST FOR HALLOWEEN. They are a year round sort of thing. Always welcome. Always enjoyable and always to be admired.
The 1984 Beanie comes ready made or as a kit for you to make your own, which I’m guessing you’d like to do. It comes with wool yarn, the pattern and a tapestry needle. You just need to have some
broomsticks US17 (12mm) needles which you can get from Wool And The Gang too.
OK – I had a lot of fun knitting this even though I usually use much smaller needles and I usually knit in the round. Which I would have done if I had big enough circular needles, do they even come that large in hat-size? But I couldn’t wait. Too tempting. That kit came in the mail and I had the hat done the very next day. Like I said. Fun quick knit. Just in time.
