This was inspired by ['Inga'] hat by Sheila Macdonald - I wanted a shorter hat, with a smaller pattern and more decreases for the top. I knit three different versions using three different yarns - my own handspun Jacob for mark 1 (hence the name of the beanie!), Fiesta Ballet handpainted alpaca/tencel for Jacob mark 2 and a standard pure wool DK for Jacob mark 3 - three different results. Have fun.
