Eagle Pine Hat
The Eagle Pine Hat is a classic beanie with a laid-back feel. Knit in worsted weight yarn, you’ll have it off your needles and warming up your head before you know it.
The pattern comes in sizes suitable for a woman, man or child. Make it in a trio of brights on a neutral background, or keep it basic with two contrasting colors.
The slip-stitch pattern is easy. You’ll never knit with more than one color at a time. This hat is knit in the round, with your choice of double pointed needles or circulars. The stitch pattern is both charted and written.
The Eagle Pine Mittens pattern is sold separately.
