The inspiration is a COS angora beanie - styled here by Coline. It is not available anymore, so you may have to knit one..
This is a simple knit, rather long as I used 3.5mm needles (I know, I don't do small but the knitted fabric is just so beautiful). The yarn is knitted in double, and marks my reconciliation with Rowan kidsilk haze (steel #664). I probably used a little bit less than a ball.
I love the top of the beanie, and this is the fun bit of this knit. I will write the pattern and post it some time next week. I would like to make a gauge for you guys - just in case your don't have the stamina of knitting in 3.5mm.
It suits Caterina so well (to be fair she did choose the colour and she is quite an expert in styling!) - much better on her than on me! We are working on our next project together, so stay tune guys!
