Bothwell is named for the home of Cormo, a wee little town in Tasmania, Australia where the breed was developed.

Bothwell is a cabled beanie that has been designed to highlight some of the best features of Cormo wool: glorious stitch definition, squishy texture and cables that just pop. Rib and cables collide to create a gender neutral beanie at its best of any head.

The combination of big and small cables are incorporated into the crown shaping for a really beautifully finished crown.

Bothwell is knit in the round from the brim upwards.

Instructions are both written and charted for both body and crown.

Finished brim circumference measurement:
Relaxed - 19”/48cm

Designed to fit with up to 5” negative wearing ease.
