"BOGLAND" Knitting Pattern for Slouchy Beanie for Women, Men and Teens/ Easy Slouchy Hat Pattern Knit in the Round on Circular and double-pointed needles. This slouchy beanie pattern was inspired by the ancient peat boglands of Ireland.For centuries the homes of Ireland have been heated using peat/ turf cut from the local boglands which are scattered throughout the countryside. These ancient boglands are centuries old and were formed from the remnants of old forests, the wood compressed and altered through the years until it forms a hard, dense brown black peat, which is a perfect fuel for country homes. The boglands change color with the seasons, from brown and black, to pink when covered in heather, to rust and speckled white when the bog cotton is in bloom. This beautiful simple, yet rich and rustic beauty is reflected in the hat design The samples shown are knit in a tweedy Aran yarn in shades of black, brown, green and grey, speckled with cream, black , copper and gold. This lovely warm, comfortable, slouchy hat is an easy knit and looks great on both men and women and is ideal for teenagers. The hat has a garter stitch brim and simple stocking stitch body. The hat is casual , comfortable, stylish, warm and versatile, suitable for all occasions. It will become a firm favourite for seasons to come.
