The Archer beanie is knitted with two strands of yarn and the brim is folded twice for triple thickness around the ears bringing you extra warmth and coziness during the winter months. 

You can easily adjust the length of the hat to get the fit you want. The hat is knitted from top down, so you can try it on as you knit it to make sure the length is just perfect for your head. After the crown shaping the rest of the hat is just simple 3x2 ribbing.

The Archer beanie is designed for everyday use, and it knits up surprisingly fast. This is the perfect project to use the precious hand dyed skeins from your stash, as the simple design really highlights the colors and texture of the yarn! You can either go for a muted look by choosing matching solid colorways for both yarns, get a marled look by choosing different colors for the fingering weight yarn and the mohair, or go for extra speckles by picking both yarns in speckled colorways (either the same colorway or both different).

Combining a strand of silk-mohair knitted together with a fingering weight merino yarn makes the hat really soft and gives it a beautiful halo. You can knit the beanie without mohair using just a single strand of DK weight yarn.
