Wanded Knit and Crochet
Whizzbees Beanie Knitting Pattern
Named for the sweet magical treat Fizzing Whizzbees, this whimsical design wiggles its way into your heart. Fizzing Whizzbees are large sherbet balls that cause the person sucking on it to float a few inches off the ground, which I think the squiggly lines imitate. Using simple right and left twist stitches against reverse stockinette background, this one fizzes into a beautiful crown!
Pattern includes written instructions for worsted and DK weights. Chart is included. Explanation of how to do the twists without a cable needle as well as video tutorial links are provided.
