Sea Green Tweed Beanie

Sea Green Tweed Beanie

Imagine for a moment that you are walking down a pier on a brisk Winter morning. You have a warm drink in your hands, and can smell the salt in the air.  Despite the wind, you don’t feel the chill. Why? Because you are wearing this beanie. Scroll down for the free pattern, and get the yarn here!

The combination of a slouchy fit, flat ribbing and Little Fountain Lace makes this beanie both comfortable and attractive. We chose a tweed yarn in DK weight to create that classic, Winter-y look.

For this patter we used the Knit Picks yarn City Tweed in Kelp. You can get the same yarn HERE!
