]When you live up north, like we do, a beanie is essential. The Hyperbolic Puff Beanie, designed by Susan Walsh, is a perfect play on this classic accessory! Featuring a gorgeous, textured ribbing effect, through the clever use of overlay crochet, this crocheted beanie is made to endure many cold seasons. The twists and turns in its atypical pompom are reminiscent of the sharp bends in hyperbolas, truly adding a cherry on top of an already wonderfully functional and unique design.
This hat is crocheted using 2 strands of Scheepjes Metropolis held together. You could go for 2 strands of the same colour, like the beanie pictured above. But why not use 2 contrasting colours to create a two-tone effect? The enormous range of Metropolis colours offers you lots and lots of colour inspiration!
