Alewife is a chic, slightly slouchy beanie. Stitched here in a wool/alpaca blend it is light but warm, and pairs just as well with a parka as a dress coat. It looks more complicated than it is and the front post stitches have the right amount of definition to add but not overcome the style. This hat makes a great gift for a cherished friend, beloved family member or a treat for yourself.

I spend my days working in the oncology department in one of Boston's top hospitals and my nights & weekends playing with yarn. My passions are everything related to art, books, hockey and the creative process. My fur baby, Orlando, is a 10 year-old tuxedo cat that runs my life. He loves yarn as much as I do.
