This is beanie hat is based on the iconic VW Splitty, Splitscreen, Kombi, Bus............whatever you like to call it.
It doesn't take a huge amount of yarn so it's great for using up those odd balls of yarn you've not been sure what to do with!
The pattern will be sent to you in PDF format so you'll need Adobe Reader to open it (you can get this free if you don't already have it at www.adobe.com)
NOTE: Please make sure you include the email address you'd like the pattern sent to and check your spam/junk email box as some of the patterns have landed in there!
The sending of the PDF file is not automated but you should receive it within 24hours. Please allow a little longer at weekends just in case we've escaped in our own Splitty - Miss Money Pit as we now call her!)
What you'll need:
I've based this pattern using double knitting (DK/Worsted Weight/8ply) yarn on UK no. 8 and 9 needles (US size 5 and 6, metric 3.75 and 4mm). You just need three colours - one for the body, one for the roof & bumpers (fenders) and one for the windows. You'll also need a large button for the badge.
You'll need a good knowledge of knitting as there is shaping on the crown of the hat and of course you'll be working with more than 1 colour.
The pattern is my own design so please just keep it for yourself.
Thank you, have fun and don't take life too seriously!
