Fireside is a simple beanie pattern featuring polka dots over a three-colour base. The hat is worked in the round, bottom up and can be worn with the ribbing section flipped up for a fitted look or with it down for a slouched style. With an easy to memorise stitch repeat, this fun, fashionable and very quick knit, is great for last minute gifts.
