Erin Beanie Pattern
I designed this DK weight hat just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. I was definitely inspired by this gorgeous and bold ‘Envy’ colorway from Leading Men Fiber Arts. It is such a perfect kelly green and I knew this color deserved a detailed design to compliment it.
The texture in this design is achieved by solely using right and left twisted stitches. I have included both written instructions and charts for the body of the hat and decrease sections, depending on your preference.
