Electric Nesmith Beanie
As part of the “My Mountain Hat Competition”, I designed
3 hats using new yarns by Schachenmayr. I needed an
over-sized beanie! It had to be orange and pink and it
had to have a giant pompom! When rolling up the brim,
I noticed a similarity between my hat and the one worn
by my favourite member of The Monkees - Mike Nesmith.
The unique quality this yarn possesses, is a reflective
fibre included in the spinning process which makes this
an ideal hat for being noticed during the day and night!
