What I love most about the winter is the hats! For some it’s a way of protecting themselves from the freezing cold but for me it’s an actual obsession. I particularly like the beanie as it’s comfortable and practical but at the same time very feminine. The beanie featured in this tutorial is unusually beautiful in my opinion.
Even though it’s very basic, our sparkliest yarn, in fact called Sparkle, a clever mix of baby alpaca, merino wool and lamé gives it that something extra and better still you only need a small amount of yarn to make this beanie. With so many good reasons what are you waiting for!
