KNITTING PATTERN for "THORNHILL" BEANIE for Women , Men and Teens. This pattern was inspired by the area known as “Thornhill” near my home. It is a beautiful peat bogland surrounded by dense green forests. This countryside is lovely year round, but in the autumn it changes colour to become a rich tapestry of rusty oranges and browns, interspersed with purple heather and straw coloured grasses, with a backdrop of rich green trees and pale blue-grey skies. The combination of all of these colours inspired this design which comprises a ribbed brim striped with four different colours and a simple body in a plain solid colour and stitch. The hat is a close-fitting , snug beanie which will be perfect for any occasion and will suit men, women and teens. The stripes can be knit to suit college colours also, making it a perfect back-to-school hat. It can be knit in pure wool, acrylic or a wool-mix yarn.
