Bring on the chill. Using thickly spun yarn, Sphagnum knits up quickly to create a super bulky ribbed beanie that will keep a guy cozy in any weather.
Sphagnum is worked bottom up with 1x1 ribbing throughout, making for a stretchy fabric that provides a more personalized fit. In addition, the ribbing creates extra pockets in the fabric for warm air to get trapped. It's a versatile hat that's sure to get plenty of use.
This pattern is from Woodsmoke & Ash: Knits for Men.
