Mallory is a basic, colorful beanie that has you and your favorite knitworthy friends + loved-ones covered this fall! Mallory is a great introduction to our colors for autumn 2020, and to both of our yarn bases, as it uses one skein of Forge in Fawn with Weld held together on the body in Tobacco, Mustard, Cabernet, and Dusk. Enjoy working the squishy Fisherman’s Rib brim in Forge for a soft and pillow-y ear hugging beanie you’ll enjoy for years to come!
