Inspired by the surf beach of my teens, this close-fitting beanie is a light but warm hat knit with two strands of Shibui yarn held together throughout to form a foamy, marled fabric for the main body. A pop of bright contrast adds that detail and texture I love, and the finished piece is topped off with a perky pompom.
This beanie comes in two sizes – small or large – and can be worn with negative ease (as intended) or with a little more slouch if that’s your preference. Perfect for the surfer in your life who wants to keep their ears warm and the ocean wind out of their hair.
