Chilly nights spent in front of a blazing wood fire with its crackled wood and twisted flames inspired this cosy beanie-style hat.
Knit in the round from the brim up, the hat begins with a variation of a twisted rib before smoothly transitioning into a curved rib textured pattern which creates a snug fit while the crown decreases continue the look.
It was designed using the same stitch pattern as:
Araluen Fingerless Mitts and Araluen Cowl.
