Paradiddles are one of the basic rudiments of drumming. They consist of four even strokes played in the order right-left-right-right and left-right-left-left.

Knit, purl, knit, knit, purl, knit, purl, purl…
Chris began rapping out a rhythm and then added words that at first sounded like a random assortment of knits and purls. “You should knit a paradiddle,” he said, “it’s simple, par-a-di-dle.”
A knitted rhythm. The idea appealed to me. Knitting, after all, is very rhythmic once you settle into your stitches.

Paradiddle is a classic fitting beanie hat worked in the round from the bottom up. The ribbed stitch pattern is perfect for guys and gals providing interesting texture without being overwhelming. For a turned up cuff work hat an additional 2 inches long before beginning crown decreases. (If you do this then you will need an additional skein of yarn for the larger two sizes.)
