The Crown-shy Beanie is currently exclusive to the Knitworthy 7 collection and will be released as an individual pattern in mid-December.
Our latest collection of beautiful accessory patterns, perfect to gift. Knitworthy 7 comprises of six patterns and this year includes access to a dedicated community group in the Knitwork!
The beanie uses heavy DK or worsted weight yarn. You’ll work from the bottom up, beginning with a provisional cast-on. The folded brim is knit together, followed by a hidden section of ribbing that will keep the hat nice and snug. Shaping is worked into the stitch patterns, bringing them together to form a star at the top of the crown. The pattern includes sizes for the whole family, and the folded brim can easily be substituted for a simple rib to give a different style.
“Crown-shyness” describes the jigsaw puzzle of random looking interlocking shapes outlined by light that can be observed when looking up from the forest floor. These gaps, created by the trees considering their neighbours as they grow, ultimately benefit the entire ecosystem. It’s a gentle reminder to tread lightly and leave no trace during outdoor adventures.
