The Abbey Beanie is part of The London Spires Collection. It is through my love for architecture that has brought about this collection, especially the gothic spires and arches of Westminster Abbey, London.
This perfectly sized beanie will keep you warm and snug on those chilly days. It is knit in the round using a mix of ribbing stitches. Two strands of the sumptuous Grafton, from TownHouse Yarns, held together, is used to give strong stitch definition to the elegant cabled arches. These arches culminate to form five Moorish arches at the crown. The ribbing makes it stretchy enough to fit most adult head sizes. Wear it slightly slouchy for a smaller head, or a more snug fit for larger heads.

One Size – will fit most adult head sizes.
