For this pattern I used:

For short version: One 50g ball Mohair Tweed (70% Merino Wool & 30% Mohair, 110m/120yds per 50g)
Metres for long version: approx. 150m.
Metres for short version: approx. 110m.
Needles: 3.25mm and 4mm circular needles (40cm length) and set of four double pointed 4mm needles.
Gauge (tension): 22 stitches and 26 rows to 10cm square over stocking stitch using 4mm needles.
Size: to fit average size head.
My design ideas and advice: This is a classic beanie hat – nice, easy to knit, a true classic. Plus there isn’t any sewing up, except securing those last 6 stitches, a perfect knit. I wear my Jordan Hat all through the winter…and autumn….and some spring days! It is keeps you at the right temperature and keeps those chilly winds away. I don’t notice I have it on, until I don’t!
