Warm wind for cold winter...here is Rafales. Inspired from cold winter snowy winds, this beanie can be made fitted of slouch(perfect for long hair :) worked in the round while stretching stitches by slipping them. It makes vertical gathering, remembering gust of wind, called Rafales in french. Et voila!
Worked with alpaca(green slouch)it makes a great soft slouch, while worked with wool(grey fitted hat) its a perfect fitted beanie.
**Note: If you want to knit it for kids, use smaller needles and yarn (ex: 3,5mm and 5mm needle
with a sport size yarn)
