Ribbed Beanie Project - Titus Version

Ribbed Beanie Project - Titus Version

"Machine-made quality with a soft-focus haze."

We wondered how delicious Baa Ram Ewe Titus would hold up to the vigorous twisting that comes from ribbing on small needles. Answer: beautifully! The fabric of this Ribbed Beanie has the orderly, precision quality of the original version, while the alpaca gives an out-of-focus haze that softens the look, without being too fluffy.

You can pick up the pattern and some of the fabulous colors below, or go to Baa Ram Ewe Titus to see the full selection of colors.
