Linsey Woolsey

Linsey Woolsey: so named because of its stitch and fibre.

This bonnet uses all over linen stitch in the soft, warm, worsted Dream in Color Classy, and you'll love it because:

  • the linen stitch gives the bonnet great structure
  • short rows at each front panel add steep triangles of fabric that can be worn flat or folded back
  • the density of the fabric gives extra protection from the cold
  • TASSELS, people. It's got tassels.

Linsey Woolsey is sized for an adult head; 20-22” / 51-56 cm circumference.

Dream in Color Classy, 100% superwash merino, 250 y / 229 m per 100 g hank, Karma Chamelion, 1 hank
4.5 mm (US 7) circulars or straights or size to obtain gauge
