Castle inspired beanie

Deciding what hat to make for a fantastic “Castle” fan was easy… One similar to that worn by Alexis.

This hat is quite different in the end, but the same basic shape has been maintained.

I used a merino-baby alpaca mix, and it is so soft, I wish I could only knit with this forever!

Cut off yarn with 30 cms remaining. Slip stitches onto yarn and pull tight. Stitch up the side, and attach a tassel to the top. I am a tassel fan.
