“Beaumont can be made as a traditional tam (shown here in red & white) or as a beanie (shown here in shades of grey) simply by knitting to a different gauge and blocking the finished piece in a style-specific manner. Inspired by the use of angora in traditional Bohus sweaters, I worked mine with a wool/angora blend to achieve a smokey, ethereal halo that makes colorwork beautifully cohesive. The design also looks wonderful in Shetland wool.” - Jared Flood
