Karie Westermann’s cute, slouchy Echinacea beanie has alternating diamond and tree panels that use knit and purl stitches and mini cables to make the design. This beginner-friendly project is perfect for knitters who want an introduction to classic gansey stitch patterns and cabling. Knit in the round from the bottom up in rustic, heathery Lore (100% Kent lambswool), Echinacea features instructions for three sizes to fit head circumferences ranging from 18-24”.
Each kit includes 1 skein of Fibre Co. Lore in your choice of color and the pattern for Karie Westermann’s Echinacea, which will make one hat. We will purchase a copy of Echinacea for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!
Please note that this kit does not include needles. You will need US3 and US6 16” circular needles and US6 DPNs (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here and DPNs here.
If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, choose either the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin or the Spun Messenger Bag with Pin, and we will package your purchase accordingly!
