Just in time for Christmas! You can’t go wrong with a beanie hat. I’m very pleased with how the plaid turned out. Not only do those black columns hide the unsightly colour jogs you can get when knitting in the round, it gives you lovely neat decreases too!
I’ve already reviewed the yarn, Cornish Organic DK, but it can’t hurt to repeat my opinion of it being a delightfully sturdy wool yarn to work in. Any other decent wool should suffice though – I know I have fancy tastes.
