This stylish little beanie is perfectly suited to your favorite kettle-dyed colorway of Malabrigo Arroyo - it’s mostly simple ribbing and stockinette stitch, with a graphic slipped-stitch motif that really makes the yarn sing. The substantial, stretchy brim can be doubled up for warmth or left down and pushed back for a slouchier look (and ideal bad-hair-day camouflage). The crown is shaped with eye-catching, slipped-stitch decreases for a special, knitterly finish.
