The HAPPY HIPSTER is an easy to knit beanie that can be worn indoors for a casual, relaxed look or outdoors to take the edge off a cool day in hipster style. Knit with one of our favourite fingering weight yarns from Scrumptiouspurl, choosing from the colourful self-striping and solid options was the hardest part of making this hat. Who says sock yarn is only for your feet? We say why not wear it where it can be seen in all it’s glory!
