Elemental Earth Beanie

I made this for Myself

    We’re going to Kangaroo Island in July, so I thought I’d need a beanie to ward off the Antarctic wind in the middle of winter! I love this book of beanie patterns - they’re quite unusual, and I’d been looking for a reason to knit one. This beanie was surprisingly quick and easy to knit, using German short rows, and although I don’t think I quite got the Kitchener stitch right at the end, you can’t really tell. I used Malabrigo yarn, one of my absolute favourites, and the hardest part of the whole project was choosing from the vast range of glorious colours!

        Thanks, Heidi! KI was lovely - I highly recommend going if you ever get the chance, although more places are open in summer (the people hibernate a bit in winter). I’m really glad I took the beanie as it was very cold and windy!
