The Hudson Beanie by Meghan Babin is a highly customizable
beanie for everyone. This marled hat is created by holding doubled two-strands of Weld in contrasting colors to create an eye-catching fabric. The sample shown here uses nearly all of each skein, but can easily be shortened for a more head hugging fit. The Hudson Beanie is made from the bottom up in the round in a simple 1x1 rib stitch.
