Man's knit beanie: Aran hat in Irish Donegal tweed wool; original design. Made in Ireland. Cable knit hat in blue quality wool. Great gift.

$36.67

Man's knit 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 back and front 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 wool used is a fantastic Irish yarn, Studio Donegal yarn, which is spun in Co. Donegal and has little tweed flecks in it. The yarn used to be known as Kilcarra Aran Tweed, and is a real Irish classic yarn.

I also have several hats of this design available in other colours, including traditional creamy white; check out my listings : )

If you are interested in knitting your own version, the knitting pattern is also available to purchase from my shop.

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 9 inches (23 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 : )
