The Design

"Easy-going topper."

Our most Basic Beanie has just the right amount of easy-going charm with a casually rolled brim and those familiar, swirling decreases at the crown. It’s a free pattern, so all you need to do is pick a color. Up to you!

We knit this Basic Beanie in Rowan Softyak DK. In this yarn, the coolness of cotton is blended with clouds of downy yak fiber. Due to its touch of nylon and the chainette construction, it knits into a gently springy fabric (with a lovely drape after a nice rinse). The cotton and yak fibers absorb color differently, so the palette is made up of pretty shades and slight mélange effects. And it’s durable, washable, and oh-so-soft!
