Knit unique beanies inspired by the jaw-dropping landscapes from each of the 63 US National Parks!

From the brightly colored pebbles of Lake McDonald in Montana’s Glacier National Park to the regal granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome in California’s Yosemite Valley, the US National Parks contain some of the most recognizable and iconic natural landmarks in the world.

Capture the majesty each national park offers with original beanie patterns created by knitting designer and outdoor enthusiast Nancy Bates. The beanies range from simple construction to more challenging stitch patterns such as the two-color crossovers inspired by South Dakota’s Badlands or the multiple cable designs inspired by New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns. Clear charts, easy-to-read keys, and thorough instructions help any knitter, whether beginner or experienced, through these gratifying projects.
