Simple Lace, Slouch Beanie // Design By Felicia Lo
North Wind is a quick and simple one-skein hat that features a double-thick cuff to make your winters warmer. The easy-to-remember zig zag lace pattern can be extended for as much slouchiness as you like. The hat takes just one skein of heavy worsted or aran weight yarn, or you can use any of our sock yarns held double to get the same weight.
