High on the Hilltop Beanie (2023F)


In the hills and valleys of Killarney National Park in County Kerry Ireland, the largest population of wild Irish Red Deer forage and flourish in the lush woodland growth. Rarely seen, they move throughout the park under the cover of the thick woodland, but if you’re lucky enough while travelling through the park you might just see one looking back at you.

•••

High on the Hilltop Beanie is written for both Franca, our superbulky, and Maxima, our worsted weight. Both the main body pattern and decrease patterns are charted and written.
