One good turn deserves another! Earlier this year I designed the Diego cardigan with a dramatic, all-over cabled back, knit in Julie Asselin’s Nurtured yarn—and I just couldn’t leave well enough alone.
Lunita brings those cables and yarn together again in a slouchy beanie that’s as warm as it is stylish. A tubular cast on creates a neat, flexible brim (no hat head!), and all over cables make a durable, wind-resistant fabric. Top it with a fluffy faux fur pom-pom for some extra flair!
