Erin Beanie

3.00 4.00

My sister Erin is a hard one to shop for - she has great style but it's incredibly specific. Neutral, simple, clean lines, nothing too crazy. So making something for her is a bit of a technical challenge. It needs to be plain without being boring, fairly engaging to knit for my own sake, & above all well made & perfectly fit. And so this hat was born - a marl of DK & fingering weight yarns for textural interest & color with a classic silhouette that can be worn brimmed or as a long loose beanie. I've also included instructions & yardage on how to color dip the crown. And with super stretchy ribbing, this hat can fit just about any adult!

SIZING

– One size; to fit adult head (20"-24" circumference)

FibeR

– Approximately 120 yards DK weight yarn & 120 yards fingering weight yarn

– Sample: Both hats were knit up using scraps leftover from other projects
