CONFIDENT. PRACTICAL. UNIQUE.

Inspired by friends who are equal parts impulsive and practical, this luxurious beanie was designed to turn an impulse purchase into an essential winter accessory. Have you ever fallen head over heels for a pricey skein of colourful hand-dyed Merino then, upon knitting it, realized you liked it better in the skein? I have. More than once. The solution? Monica. A neat & tidy beanie that will breathe new life into those beautiful hand-dyed skeins. Pretty and practical!

The Monica hat was designed to:

  1. Use of a random ball of very colourful variegated or speckled fingering weight yarn.
  2. Tone down the colours a bit, for a gentler, more subtle colour experience.
  3. Knit up quickly—so it’s perfect for gift-giving.
