The casual new Hat Pebbles can be knitted in two different ways: tightly fitting with a smooth crown as a beanie or as a slouch variant with a softly gathered crown for a more loose fit. The British designer Woolly Wormhead has expressed her passion for circles in a gentle diagonally textured pattern. It is reminiscent of the English pebble beaches and is knitted seamlessly bottom up and in the round. Both models feature shaping incorporated into the stitch pattern for a sophisticated finish. Knitted with our Big Merino Hug, Pebbles is a warming companion for cold days.

The German version of this pattern is available directly from Rosy Green Wool.
