The KNIT SAFARI Zigzag Beanie is a fun and quick to knit project, with the contrasting zigzag colourwork keeping the knit interesting and pushing your knitting skills to the next level. The hardest part? Choosing the colours to use! Whatever you decide, this is a great winter knit to add to your hat wardrobe.

The ZigZag Beanie is is a DIY knitting pattern to create a chunky knit hat. It is knitted seamlessly in the round, from the brim to the top, with contrast stitches creating the zigzag pattern. Never tried using two colours before? Don't worry! Just make sure to keep your tension loose (especially the ""floats"" - when the yarn travels behind the work between stitches) and in no time you'll be switching shades like a pro!
