Knit wool beanie: original design with spiral cable. Handspun Irish wool. Made in Ireland. Rust brown colour. Men's beanie. Women's beanie.


Knit wool beanie: original design with cable detail. This is my new hat design: the cable detail starts slightly higher on each column, a subtle spiral detail which you can see in the first and second photos above showing the front and back of the hat. It makes it a little different from standard hats, while still being a very wearable twist on a standard Aran motif.

The yarn used is a fantastic Irish yarn, STwist yarn. The yarn is handspun from Irish wool, and is not overly processed; I could feel the lanolin as I was knitting! The natural lanolin makes the hat more waterproof than usual, making this a great hat for outdoor use. I have some more of this fantastic yarn knit into beanies in other colourways, from wine red to purple, khaki green and blue.

I have a neckwarmer available here of the same design but a different colour (black tweed):

I also have a hat of the same design available in white wool (not S Twist yarn) here:
or if you fancy having a go at knitting it yourself, the pattern is now available here:

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

The hat is seamless, having been knit in the round, and is super soft and comfortable to wear! It has a lot of stretch since it is ribbed throughout. The beanie measures around 19 inches (48 cm) in circumference (flat, unworn) and 8 1/2 inches (21 cm) from brim to crown.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about any of my knits; and thank you for looking : )
