Gauge: 25 Rows x 14 Stitches = 4″ x 4″

Total Rows = 120
Cast on with Soft and Sleek and crank out 60 rows, change Yarn and hold the Spinesse with two strands together and crank another 60 rows for a total of 120 rows.
Cast off by using the darning needle and picking up all stitches from machine.
Finishing the beanie:
Form the beanie by folding the liner into the main color. Cinch both ends of the beanie slightly. Using the yarn tail from the main color of the beanie thread yarn through all stitches of the liner color on the inside of the beanie.
Thread darning needle with liner color and bring up through the top of the beanie (you will be working on the right side) thread yarn through the main color stitched, cinch tight.
Bring yarn back through to the liner on the inside of the beanie and thread yarn through all you should end with both yarn tails coming out from the same spot. Cinch tight on both sides and tie yarn.
Thread both yarn tails onto darning needle and bring across center hole threading under the cinched hole so the yarn comes out on the opposite side of where you inserted the needle. Tie into a few knots. I like to make sure it comes out in between two of the cinched folds.
Then manipulate the yarn a bit so that the knot goes under the knitted work and is hidden.
And if you are curious about the seam where the two colors meet, it is nearly invisible, I have a hard time finding it by sight I usually have to feel for it.
This beanie could also be knit with only using the Soft & Sleek yarn using the same row counts. I just really like the way this beanie looks using the two strands of yarn held together.
