If These Aren’t Awesome Beanies, We’ll Eat Our Hats!

Do you remember the old wives tale that says you lose a lot of your body heat through your head? Well, whether or not you lose more heat through your head than elsewhere; having it covered up when it’s chilly gives you one more way to keep warm.

…And what better way to keep your head toasty than a knitted hat (homemade, of course)!

I saw this charming slouch beanie in Sportsgirl last weekend, and thought ‘hey, I could knit that!’. So, I thought I’d let you know about a couple of hat patterns we’ve got that you can make ready for winter.

The Bossley Cabled Beanie

Cables seem to take anything and make it awesome and fancy-looking!

This cap doesn’t have slouch, but if you’re into that kind of thing, you can always add repeats before you start to decrease, until you have enough extra length to give it a bit of slouch. Also, some rib around the edge of this could look good and help a slouchy version stay on. Saying all this though, the cap is nice knitted without alterations as you can see!


The Lillyfield Beanie 


Another lovely accessory, I think you’ll agree! It has a delicate look, and a super-soft feel. The patterns for both of these hats suggest Morris Handspun Cashmere, and it is so, so, so, so soft! I know 4 ‘so’s’ are a lot, but it really is that soft!

If you do knit up one of these hats, post a picture on our Facebook page – we’d love to see how it turned out!
