Feeling witchy.

Looking magical.

The Salem Beanie has all the warmth and fashionable comfort I look for in all my hats! I was wanting the perfect Fall beanie that I could wear with my hair down, and add to any of my outfits. With the added lace Suri Alpaca to a fingering weight, it creates a perfect slouch and soft cushion of brim to keep my ears warm during the cold months.

This will be perfect to pair with the Salem Sweater, by Dragon Hoard Designs, coming 11/27/2020.

The fit is perfect around the ears, and the positive ease in the body of the hat gives enough room to wear without messing your hair!!

The pattern comes in an adult medium, but change the gauge of the pattern, and you can have a larger or tighter fit!! Tighter gauge= more stitches= smaller size! (same in reverse)
