Description

An easy, casual hat, just right for those days when all you want to do is throw on a headwarmer and head down to the beach for some much-needed me time. A simple, uncomplicated design, suitable for those new to knitting as the only skills you need are cast on, knit, purl, and knit 2 together. Why not knit one in every colour - great as gifts! Get one on and get out there!
