The Great Ocean Road is an iconic tourist destination in the part of the world where I live. It’s a road that bends and winds and shuts against the Southern Ocean , with it’s at times huge waves and wild weather. The Tarndie homestead, home of the Polwarth breed, sits nestled amongst the rolling hills just off this road. The proximation of these two favourite places was the inspiration for this beanie.

The Tarndie Origins colours sing a beautiful tune of ocean melodics; the waves, the sand, the cliff faces, the mist all intertwine for a beanie that will take you exploring places near and beyond.

Great Ocean Road Beanie begins neatly at the brim with an alternative tubular cast-on. From there it is knit bottom up with fair isle work creating images of waves across the body of the hat. Decreases are used to shape the crown.

Length of finished hat approximately:
5¼/13.5 (6/15, 7¼/18.5, 8/20.5) 8½/21.5, 9¼/23.5, 10¼/26 inches/cms
when knit to correct tension.
