Pescador Light is the little sister to the Pescador Beanie. It has the same vertical constriction and ribbed finish which looks like knitted fabric, however, it is made with fingering weight yarn and uses a slightly different stitch. It is a beanie for everyday wear, which will complement any outfit while keeping you warm.

Materials

YARN: Fingering weight yarn (size 1, 4 ply, sock yarn)

For a short beanie: Approx 170 (200, 235, 280, 320, 370) m / 185 (220, 260, 305, 350, 405) yds.

Sample used Botanical Yarn, 4ply Merino Sock (75% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon; 425 m per 100g), in colour Galentines.

A wool or wool blend yarn is recommended for better memory and elasticity in the ribbing.

HOOKS: 3 mm or size needed to meet gauge.

NOTIONS: 1 stitch marker (or loose strand of yarn) and a tapestry needle.

Alternative Yarns

Any fingering weight yarn will work, but I recommend a wool or wool based yarn for better stretch and memory such as these:

Gauge

30 sts x 36 rows = 10 cm x 10 cm / 4 x 4 in.

Worked with a 3mm hook flat over stitch pattern as follows:

Row 1: dsl; Row 2: slstBLO; Row 3: dslBLO. Rep Rows 2 and 3.

Swatch was measured blocked while fabric remained very stretchy – do not overstretch during blocking!
