The Design Concept Of The Phlox Beanie Knitting Pattern: Flower-Inspired Lace For Winter
Wisps of delicate flower-esque lace cascade gracefully down the side of a classic knit beanie, making The Phlox Beanie an exquisite, ethereal accessory for fall and winter. The striking contrast of stunning lacework boldly emerging from a sea of classic stockinette stitches that gradually flow upward into a symmetrical, spiral design at the top makes this toque truly captivating. Inspired by beautiful white phlox flowers, this knitting pattern is suitable for advanced-beginner knitters and equips you with detailed written instructions, a stitch glossary, links to numerous video and photo tutorials, a schematic with precise measurements, information on adapting the pattern to make it larger or smaller, tutorial photos, and more. If you're searching for a delightfully fun knitting pattern to create a charming and unique knit beanie, then The Phlox Beanie knitting pattern is definitely for you!
Phlox flowers grow in diverse habitats from alpine tundra to open woodland, prairies, and meadows, and have always been valued in gardens for their simplistic beauty and their ability to attract butterflies. I designed The Phlox Beanie to have a simplistic knit appearance, which is why I chose to design this beanie with simple yet classic cream-colored yarn and to incorporate classic knit stitches and a standard beanie structure and fit, i.e., a fold-up brim, stockinette stitches for the body, etc. The striking knit lacework design down the side of The Phlox Beanie was inspired by the Phlox flower, especially when they grow in bunches on the ground, which can sometimes look like intricate lace, with the earth peeping through the petals. This added lacework on the beanie adds textural and visual interest and makes a huge impact. I hope you will enjoy knitting this beanie as much as I enjoyed designing it!
More Details Of The Phlox Beanie Knitting Pattern: Construction, What's In The Knit Pattern + More
The Phlox Beanie features a beautiful fold-up brim that is a slightly different take on a standard ribbing for a brim. The brim was specifically designed to stand out and have a more prominent appearance in order to offset the classic stockinette stitches and to provide a basis for the lacework. The body of The Phlox Beanie is knitted in classic stockinette stitches and there is a large lacework design down the side of the beanie that is created using only the simplest of knit stitches and techniques. It's really a breeze to knit and works up super quickly. The beanie is knitted seamlessly in the round, and the top of the beanie was designed to feature a symmetrical, spiral decrease at the top. A faux fur pom is then added to the top, but the knitting pattern also includes instructions and photos for making and securing a pom pom made of yarn on the top, if preferred. Overall, The Phlox Beanie knitting pattern is really easy and is suitable for advanced-beginners (knitting in the round on circular knitting needles and it incorporates simple stitches, techniques, increases, and decreases).
