Aran cable beanie: chunky or dk knit hat in alpaca mix yarn. Classic camel colour. Made in Ireland. Unisex. Great gift or timeless accessory


Aran cable beanie: chunky or dk knit hat in alpaca mix yarn. When I received this lovely yarn (Alpaca Tweed by Stylecraft), I wasn't sure whether to knit it held doubled (to make a chunky knit), or knit it as is (at a double knitting weight) - the solution was to knit up both! I now have two lovely hats to offer; both are basically the same pattern (the decreases are slightly different to allow for the different yarn thickness). The classic cable pattern and neutral colour combine to make a timeless hat: this will go with pretty much everything! You have the choice of the chunky knit hat, or the lighter dk knit hat.

I'm a knitter from the Aran Islands, and having made many hats over the years, I'm delighted to have my own designs on sale!

Both hats measure around 18 inches/46 cm in circumference (unworn); they have a lot of stretch and will comfortably fit an adult. From brim to crown the chunky knit hat measures 8 1/4 inches/21 cm unworn; the dk knit hat measures 8 1/2 inches/22 cm. I've tried both on my own head (which measures 24 inches in circumference, and both are a good fit, and length-wise, cover my ears comfortably!)

Thank you for looking, and feel free to get in touch if you have any queries : )
