This stretchy, smooshy beanie is knit in the round from the bottom up. It features two curious little owls, one on the front and one on the back. Both owls perch on a twig and peer out from between branches. Each branch “grows” out of a knit section of the ribbing. Pair this beanie with a Branch Cowl and Pop-Up Owl Mittens for maximum coziness.
