It's not only sock weather, but also hat weather - at least when you ask my mum. She often goes out for walks early in the morning and at temperatures just a bit above freezing point I see the need to keep one's head warm. Her newest favourite hat to wear is this one: Devonshire Beanie.
Not only is she a big fan of natural colours (or as I call them non-colours), but this hat is knitted from a real luxurious yarn: Lang Yarns Cashmere Light with 88% pure cashmere. Definitely a special treat!
The Devonshire Beanie uses a rather unusual construction method: First the cable band is worked from side to side and joined in the round, then stitches are picked up on either side of the band to work the ribbed brim and the crown in Stockinette Stitch. If desired, a pompom embellishes the beanie.
The pattern, that includes three sizes to fit head circumference of approximately 41.75 (45.5, 51) cm 16.5 (18, 20)", is now available from my Ravelry store, here.
