The Colmena beanie is a super warm hug for your head! Inspired by tight and intricate honeycomb, this squishy pattern creates a dense fabric that will surely keep your ears and noggin warm all winter long. Colmena was named for the Spanish word for “hive” in honor of Spanish designer Antoni Gaudí and his love of integrating the honeycomb shape into his architectural designs. Knit with Echoview Fiber Mill’s Botanically Dyed Merino yarn, the naturally dyed color creates an added dynamic to such a texturally interesting pattern. Available in a size for both kids and adults, knit a hat so you can keep your whole family warm!
