“Cashmere & silk & a fab free pattern.”
Our simple stockinette beanie has been a shop favorite as far back as we can remember. Super simple, knit in the round, and sized for any member of the family. But this one - maybe keep for you! Knit here in String Blossom, a smooth, high twist sport-weight yarn that flows easily across the needles with the perfect balance of cashmere and silk. Silk gives strength and structure to the beanie, but all you’ll feel is the brushed downy cashmere. Ribbed brim keeps beanie snugly in place, with a hint of slouch in the back.

One skein of String Blossom will knit up into a gorgeous solid color beanie; we color-tipped ours with 10 yards of another shade of Blossom. Choose from one of our four tipping colors on our hand-wound spool tags. Two skeins will yield two beanies; save 10 yards from each to color tip the other! Warm, light, and soon essential.

Choose a delicious hat color! Each spool tag contains approximately 10 yards of yarn, enough to color-tip one adult-sized beanie (sold separately).
