So here's the brand new beanie hat which I chatted about in my last blogpost. This is the Petersfield Beanie Hat which co-ordinates perfectly with the Petersfield Scarf that I introduced at the end of last year.
Both the scarf and the hat have been worked in Granite Stitch from our Reversible Knitting Stitches book. This is a deeply textured reversible stitch with a very modern graphical look. The texture captures lots of extra warmth which is just what you need in these arctic conditions.
The top of the hat has a snug beanie fit and the instructions include details for three different sizes.
I have written before about the delights of working with two ends of yarn at the same time and it is fast becoming my preferred technique for chunkier items.
Please click here for more information about the Petersfield Collection and also to see a video which my husband Tim very kindly put together for me.
I wrote this hat and scarf set with men’s patterns in mind, but I actually used the Petersfield Scarf pattern for a lovely pale blue and white scarf for myself to join the set of items I was talking about here. I’ll rustle up some photos and post these next time.
Until then, keep warm if you can!
