Keep It Simple Beanie (or Slouchy)
Let's end the year with something that's "simple to knit" and "simply luxurious", shall we? Our new pattern, the Keep It Simple Hat, feels as amazing as it is easy to knit- and that's probably because it uses the 50% cashmere and 50% yak fiber yarn Lhasa. Incredibly soft, incredibly warm, incredibly squishy, and so lovely!
The Keep it Simple Hat is written for two styles:
The pattern is $5, or free when you purchase the Lhasa.
The chainette ply keeps the Lhasa feeling light and lofty despite the heavy quick-knit weight. The Keep it Simple Hat is knitted in the round on US size 8 needles, and the stockinette stitch helps time fly by! With a little dedication, you could whip one of these up in a weekend.
Laura finished her 2 skein slouchy version of the Keep It Simple Hat while out of town- but she sent me these photos to share!
Lhasa is only available in solid colors, but they are all beautifully heathered, which adds texture and depth to the finished fabric. The samples in the photos were knitted with the purple #12 and the teal blue #7, but I happen to love the red #10, the sage #8, and the creamy #5!
