I love to make sports patterns. And this one is a really bright one! :)
This time it's a basketball beanie!
It has a multicolor ribbing in light and dark orange, off-white and black.
Then comes the basketfield and two players in the air.
One tries to throw the ball over the others head into the basket. The other one is in the defence.
The players are followed by basketball shoes and at the top there are basketballs and a stripe circle.
It's completely knitted in 4-ply sock yarn. Alternatively you can also use Acrylic or Merino yarn (4 - to 5-ply).
For bigger heads go up one or two needle sizes and/or use 5-ply yarn or both.
It's easier to knit than you may think as there are at most two colors in one round.
Enjoy and happy basketball knitting!
