Sweet Heart Beanie

I love a fast knit and no seaming! Patons Inca is so soft and squishy. A lovely blend of wool, alpaca and acrylic this beanie will be warm as toast on a minters morning in Clare.

I was fortunate enough to get a couple of test knitters. Thank you to Zoe, who enthusiastically knit two beanies!

I really enjoy knitting hats and beanies. They are the only items I will knit on commission for others.

If you would like one, custom orders start at $40 for a beanie.
