Regular price $8.95

Skill Level: Intermediate Knitting

This well-proportioned beanie features an unusual style of shaping that allows the colourwork pattern to extend to the crown. The method of shaping creates faux seams that can be worn at the sides or front and back facing.
The generous rib edging can be adjusted when folded back to achieve the wearer’s desired fit.
It can be topped with a large pompom.

The cosy cowl is simple to style and wear.
The colourwork pattern weaves its way across a painterly background of tonal colour and is framed either side with a short section of rib.
The stranded colourwork pattern can be worked from the chart or the written instructions.
