The Aer Beanie takes its name from the Irish word for ‘Air’.
How It’s Knit
This hat uses simple 1/1 cables to create air bubbles that rise from the twisted ribbing to the crown decreases of the hat.
Make It Your Own
At first these bubbles are regular, but as they rise (and as you work further on the hat) they become free-floating – so you can add them randomly as you choose. Each hat will truly be one-of-a-kind.
Only one skein of sport weight yarn, and one size of knitting needle is required to create this light-as-air hat.
