Julian gets a zeebee

Baby twin Julian models one of the zeebees for Daddy Dave. They like this hat for the newborn (in Koigu), because of its softness, and because it’s so stretchy/springy, it doesn’t squish baby’s ears.

Used measurements of 12 inches circumference and 4.4 inches for the length of the beanie with my swatch numbers to get these.

Specifically, then, working Koigu on size 3 needles, I cast on 28 stitches, and had 156 rows, 10 crown wraps.

If you’re in love with zeebees, as I now am, you may notice that the number of crown wraps are 1/16 of the row number… And length is whatever you want. That’s making it easier for me to do zeebees without the calculator…

But you do need Schmeebot’s wonderful pattern to get this hat under your skin. You shouldn’t miss it…
