The Wool and the Gang Billy Beanie Kit is your one-way ticket to the land of stylish, warm and light headgear. It’s got a cool, slouchy look that says, “Oh, this beautiful thing? I just threw this together.” It’s also dead easy to knit. Therefore it’s perfect if you’re just getting started with knitting or if you want a relaxing afternoon project. And when you’re done you can show it off and say, “I made this!”
The Billy Beanie is made with Wool and the Gang Feeling Good yarn. It’s a sustainable baby alpaca/merino blend. Wool and the Gang sources the baby alpaca wool from the Andean Highlands. It’s light, fluffy, soft, warm and easy to knit with; it will feel delightful when it’s wrapped around your head. We’ve got so many gorgeous colours for you to choose from that you’ll be able to find the one that meshes perfectly with your personal style.
If you’re a beginning knitter, this pattern will teach you the following skills: long-tail cast on, 1×1 rib stitch, stocking stitch, increasing, decreasing and vertical invisible seam technique.
