Join our Thurlby Lane Beanie KAL


The other day I was hat shopping, I need a new hat to update the wool overcoat I purchased last year, as I tried on some adorable slouchy styles I noticed many were already unraveling!  I thought, I bet I'm not the only with this dilemma and I can knit myself a new hat that will be warmer plus a custom fit and the perfect color.  Thurlby Lane by Army of Knitters is the perfect shape and can be dressed up or made casual.  

I'm going to knit it in 1 skein of my 1 Ply Merino Worsted, Heather Dixon knit her's in 1 skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted and all of my Worsted Weight yarns are On Sale.  

I hope you join our Thurbly Lane KAL, Oct. 27-Dec. 1, they'll be an Army of Knitters' Kit & Patterns as Prizes!
