Rhythm & Flow is a DK weight slouchy fit beanie designed to fit snug at the brim with moderate slouch in the body. The linen stitch brim and accent texture stripes playfully allow the burst of colors in speckled yarns to dance.

The design of Rhythm & Flow lends itself to a variety of yarn combinations. This beanie can be worked holding two strands together throughout of fingering weight yarn (as demonstrated in the sample) or with a single strand of DK weight.
