Petersfield Beanie Hat
The Petersfield Beanie Hat is a men’s knitted beanie with a very modern graphical look. It features a contrast-coloured ribbed brim and a deeply textured stitch for extra warmth. The cuffed brim can either be worn down for a slouchy ski hat or turned up for extra insulation around your ears. The top of the hat has a snug beanie fit for a warm finish and the instructions include details for three different sizes.
NB: The Petersfield Beanie Hat is also available as a set together with a co-ordinating scarf, the Petersfield Scarf. Please click here for more information.
