Accessibility Statement
The main PDF for this pattern is colour blind accessible. It uses black text on a white background and does not rely on colour.

Due to its bulky nature, there isn’t a great deal of yardage to 100g, and the largest size does use most of it. If you swatched and you’re knitting the largest size, you may need to reuse the swatch.

This beanie is designed to be long – to either be worn tall (as current fashion dictates) or worn with a folded brim. Should you wish for a more regular length beanie, the length of the body would be approx. 4 (4.5, 5) in/10 (11.5, 12.75) cm before starting the crown shaping.
