Coho Beanie sportweight knitting pattern - digital or hardcopy
The Coho Beanie is meant to be worn snug to the head. Knitted in the round with a central colourwork section, Coho is both easy to memorise and easy to adapt to suit a higher-crowned head.
Coho is a species of salmon that changes colour as it goes from its spawning ground into freshwater, shifting from silver and blues to greens and reds.
Sizes: To be worn with approximately 6cm negative ease.
Adult L/XL for 60.5cm/23.75” head circumference (54.5cm/21.5” after blocking)
Adult M/L for 57cm/22.5” head circumference (51cm/20” after blocking).
Adult S for 53.5cm/21” head circumference (47.5cm/18.75” after blocking).
Adult XS/Child for 50cm/19.75” head circumference (44cm/17.25” after blocking).
Toddler for 46.5cm/18.25” head circumference (40.5cm/16” after blocking).
Needles: 3mm needles for rib and crown. I used a 60cm-long circular needle cable for all of the hats apart from the toddler size, which I knitted with 25cm circular needles, and swapped to double-pointed needles (DPNs) for all crown decreases.
3.5mm needles for stranded colourwork.
Gauge: unblocked 12 sts and 13.5 rounds over 5cm. Blocked 11.5 sts and 14 rounds over 5cm.
Grams required: Depends on whether you are knitting a three-colour or four-colour version and which size.

Yarn: John Arbon Textiles Yarnadelic, a sportweight wool. This is a beautiful Corriedale wool (non-Superwash) spun in Devon, England. It comes in 25g mini skeins 83m/91yds (also available in 100g skeins).
Yarn substitutes: Something with the same or very similar meterage. It can be a different blend but be aware that meterage requirements will change if you substitute yarns. Ideally, you want something that is soft and squishy that will create a warm fabric but is ever so slightly toothy to help the colourwork bind together.

I now operate a ‘pay what you can’ scale for my electronic/downloadable single patterns. I usually charge £5 for these patterns and to encourage access for all crafters, these are now available on a scale of £3 - £7 and you chose what you can afford within that scale.
Please note that this doesn’t apply to my hard copy patterns, which remain priced at £5 and come with an automatic digital download.

Postage and Packaging
You can read all about P&P here.
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
