This might be our fave classic beanie made a lil luxe with luscious mohair.
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner
Knit a long long long tube in luxe mohair + a fingering weight yarn of your choice. Switch colors at the upper 1/4 and begin decreasing. The main shaping is created by pleating on the penultimate row and then gathering the remaining stitches. Finally the cast on edge is whip stitched to the interior at the color change to create a double layer fabric for an extra cozy hat.
