Pattern Description:

Classic beanie for wintery days. Although this is called a boyfriend beanie - it is very unisex - consider it in the same vein as the boyfriend jean!

But a whole lot of guys like a simple non-fussy hat and this will suit that!

This hat was originally designed with Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino DK, which has since been discontinued. I've since knitted it in a variety of substitute yarns, and currently do so by holding two threads together of Knit Picks Palette 'fingering' weight yarn.
