The Wild West: Stranded — Organ Pipe Beanie

SUNSET CAT-51Like with the Ringtail Hat and Mitts, I wanted to take elements of the original pattern—in this case the Organ Pipe mitts—and make a coordinating, rather than matching, accessory.

The Organ Pipe Beanie uses the flower motif but expands on the geometric motifs.

Finished Measurements Brim circumference 16 (18, 20)in / 40.5 (45.5, 51)cm Head circumference 183/4 (221/2, 261/4)in / 47.5 (57, 66.5)cm Height including brim 71/4 (73/4, 81/2)in / 18.5 (19.5, 21.5)cm
