Tickle Cove Beanie

I just finished knitting a Tickle Cove beanie. I found the pattern in the Saltwater Classics - Caps, Vamps and Mittens from the Island of Newfoundland book. It’s the first time I made it and it was easy. The colour is ginger.

Using medium worsted weight wool/yarn and 3.75mm double pointed needles cast on 93 stitches. Mark beginning of round.


Round 1. (K1, P1). Repeat to last stitch. K1. Round 2. (P1, K1). Repeat to last stitch. P1. Repeat these 2 rounds 4 times more. Next Round. As Round 1, increasing 9 stitches evenly spaced (102 stitches). 


Change to 4mm double pointed needles. Work chart from right to left, bottom to top. Next Round. (Work Round 1 of Arch Chart on stitches 1-17. Place marker.) Repeat to end of round. Continue working successive rounds of Tickle Cove Arch until 28 rounds are complete. 

Next Round. Knit, removing sectional markers as you come to them. Knit 5 rounds more. 

Shape Top

Round 1. (K2tog, K13, SSK). Place marker. Repeat to end of round. Round 2. Knit, slipping markers. Round 3. (K2tog, K11, SSK, slip marker). Repeat to end of round. Round 4. Knit. Continue decreasing in this manner on alternate rounds until 18 stitches remain, ending with a knit round and removing sectional markers on the last round. Next Round. (K2tog, SSK), repeat to last 2 stitches of round, K2tog. Break yarn leaving a 12-inch (30 cm) tail. Thread through remaining stitches and fasten off. 


Darn ends. Turn inside out and lightly press over the end of an ironing board, omitting the ribbing.
