Lucky Shamrock Beanie

Shamrock Beanie

St. Patrick’s is around the corner! Wip out this lucky shamrock beanie for one of your loved ones or for yourself. The stitch pattern is an 8 stitch repeat, making it an easy stitch pattern to use on smaller or bigger hats, or other projects in the round. An awesome unisex design. Want a slouchy style instead of a tight fitting beanie? Work more rounds in the italicized section in the pattern.

Pattern notes:Shamrock Beanie Side View

  1. When working with two strands of yarn on the same row, be sure to pick up the yarns in the same order throughout the project.  View this video for a few tips on working with colorwork.
  2. Work your colorwork loosely, if you pull on the yarn too tight, the knitted fabric will pucker up.
  3. Wet block or steam block after knitting.
  4. Work chart from the bottom up, and every round starts on the right.

INSTRUCTIONS

Set up the All-n-One loom to 72 pegs (or any other multiple of 8 stitches).

Using MC, cast on 72 stitches, prepare to work in the round.

Rnd 1-8: *k2, p2; rep from * to the end of rnd.

Rnd 9-11: k to the end of rnd.

Rnd 12: Join CC, k to the end of rnd.

Rnd 13: PU, MC, p to the end of rnd.

Rnd 30-50: With MC, k to the end of rnd. Cut MC, leaving a 6 inch yarn tail.Shamrock Beanie Top view

Join CC.

Rnd 51-54: k to the end of rnd.

Decrease rounds

Rnd 55: *k2tog; rep from * to the end of rnd.

How to:

Move the stitches from the odd numbered pegs to the even numbered pegs. Knit the round, skipping the pegs with no stitches and treating the pegs with two loops as one loop.

Remove stitches from the loop to a piece of scrap yarn—this is temporary.

Readjust the knitting loom to the new peg number configuration: 36 pegs. (Divide the cast on number of pegs by 2).

Place the stitches back on the knitting loom.

Gently tug on each of the stitches, starting with the first peg, to remove any of the extra slack in the yarn.

Rnd 56: Rep Rnd 55.

Bind off with the gather removal method. Cut yarn leaving a 6 inch yarn tail.

Weave all ends in.

Steam block or wet block to set the stitches.

  • I really like this pattern. I would like to download this pattern. Will that be available anytime soon?

  • thanks so much for sharing – ST. PATRICKS DAY is my birthday so yes I will be making one of thiese……………….

  • On round 25-28 did you mean MC?

  • Download? You mean as a PDF. They are put in PDF format after being on the blog for six months. In the meantime, you can copy it and paste it onto a word document and save it that way.

  • Yes. MC.

  • Isela what a clever pattern. I’m so glad to see you still posting patterns. I started loom knitting 2 years ago, I was quite late to the party, but I learned sooooo much from your videos.You’re a fantastic teacher.

  • Where do I learn how to read these patterns. I am totally confused

  • Well, learning to read patterns is a bit like learning to read. Each pattern comes with a list of abbreviations. I guess the first step is to learn the abbreviations and what they mean. Next, start reading the pattern, if needed, replace the abbreviation with the complete term. In pattern writing, it is best to be concise, however, if you prefer, you can use the entire term, if it makes it easier to understand. Once you get to the pattern itself. A number next to a letter or term typically means that you work that many stitches (the number). Example: k2=knit two stitches (knit two pegs). Another example: Sl 3=slip 3 stitches (skip 3 stitches with yarn behind the pegs). Does this help a little?

  • I do not know any other way to reach you. May I please have some info on 2 projects On the AIO headband with crochet flower, I tried to use a #4 weight 100% wool. I was into the pattern and looked at it on the right side, the stitches were large. Your picture showed a tiny row of stitches. What did I do wrong?
    next? on the cats paw headband what yarn did you use? what weight? color?

    Thank you for your help

  • The one with the crochet flower: I just worked the knit stitch. Nothing different or fancy. My tension is the same throughout.

    Cats Paw Headband: it looks like Knit Picks Shine in worsted weight. Don’t have the color way written anywhere. It was yarn left over from another project.
