This one-size adult beanie is knitted in a DK weight wool which is my own Lyvennet Manx Loaghtan fleece, blended with Portland fleece from a nearby flock then marled with pure Portland. The main shade is Sheepfold’s undyed Latte wool which is a subtle marl; with an added ‘pop’ of two colours — the same Latte yarn which has been hand-dyed using only natural dye extracts, which are both wash and lightfast, by ‘Brambles & Me’. The crown of the hat is shaped with a subtle twister. The name of this design is the Cumbrian dialect for warm, which this beanie certainly is!
Two different colourways are available — Parma Violet and Blue Lagoon. Care guidelines, provided by Brambles & Me, are enclosed in the kit.
To knit the beanie you will need a 3.5 mm circular needle (ideally 50-60 cm length) and a set of 3.5 mm double pointed needles.
