I knitted my RUN beanie ages ago, but somehow I never got round to publishing the pattern for it. I don’t talk much about running on this blog, but I do run, and runners like to show that they are runners. Hence the idea of the beanie! Also, given this is an easy and relatively quick knit, you might just be in time to turn it into a Christmas present for a runner in your life, or perhaps for yourself!
Also, I used the lovely Portuguese Retrosaria Beiroa yarn for my beanie. I love how it is so light and lofty, at the same time as rustic with darker strands of wool spun into the yarn. I’m also fascinated with the story behind the Retrosaria yarns, whose aim is to revive Portuguese wool and yarn making. Next time I’m in that part of the world, I simply can’t miss out on visiting their shop in Lisbon!
