This wonderfully structured design is knit in a buttery soft yarn, resulting in a striking and very wearable Hat. The ridges are created using a combination of knitted tucks and folding hems, and all the techniques needed are included in the pattern. Available as a single pattern or as part of the Playful Woolly Toppers collection.


Hat Description

Beelore is a pixie Hat worked in two contrasting colours. The pattern features tucks (welts) in one colour alternating with bands of stocking stitch in another. The stripe pattern continues into the crown where it’s finished a folded I-cord in the tuck colour. The brim has 3 consecutive tucks (welts).
