Perri Beanie

from Katherine Vaughan Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Perri Beanie
Perri Beanie

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Lace knitting
  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

"Perri: Traveler. Someone who lives near a pear tree." I am fascinated with name meanings, especially when they lead to inspiration in knits. "Perri's Pattern" evokes decorative windows in houses of worship worldwide as well as heavy hanging fruits from pears to figs. The textural lace of the body of the beanie travels into ribs inspired by the ceiling of Baroque cathedrals. Tourist or homebody, this cozy hat will comfort you year round.

A version of this pattern was published as "Soy Beanie" in 101 Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders. This version is graded for multiple sizes, includes charted instructions, adds length, and has other modifications.
