The East Burn Beanie is the second release in a series of hat patterns all inspired by the flora, fauna, life and countryside in and around Northmavine in Shetland. A place Mandy is proud to call home.
'The East Burn Beanie was inspired by a small woodland just a few miles from our home – East Burn Woods – which we often walk through when we are craving trees! The colours are inspired by the vivid changing hues we see there throughout the year – the leaves and pines, the heather and grasses.'
The beanie starts with a corrugated rib and is worked entirely in the round with a pattern based on traditional Fairisle motifs. It is has been designed to pull down low over your ears to protect them from the biting North winds! Otherwise it can be worn further back on your head as a slouchy style beanie.
