Mirror Pond Beanie Neck Wrap - Piedras and Fog
The Mirror Pond Beanie Neck Wrap is my own design and the pattern will be released in early 2024 on Ravelry or this website. This pattern can be made to match a Mirror Pond Beanie or Bonnet. The neck wrap is a loose knit so the button can be secured anywhere making it a snug or loose fit. It is designed to give your neck coverage but not have the excess material found in long scarves.
This wrap is made from Malabrigo Rasta in Peidras, Fog, and Molino. It has an accent of Mecha in Mostaza in the star stitches.
Sharing a photo of a Mirror Pond Bonnet in matching colorway, it is also listed on the site.
Care. Merino wool is excellent at keeping its shape and repelling dirt and odors. It can be handwashed in cold water with a mild detergent and then laid flat to air dry.The pom should be removed prior to washing. If you find yourself in a downpour, your head will stay dry, but once inside, I suggest towel drying your beanie, scrunching it together and letting it air dry flat. If after much wear the beanie starts to pill, a sweater shaver is a great way to refreshen the beanie. For the ultimate refresh use a sweater shaver, then handwash and dry the beanie and follow with a final use of the sweater shaver.
Yarn. I use merino wool. This materials is delicious to work with and wear. Merino differs from "regular wool" in that it is much finer, softer, and most importantly does not itch. Most people who cannot wear regular wool can wear merino. Brands such as WoolX and Smartwool use merino wool.
Yarn Colorways. I use merino yarn that is dyed in small batches, there can be variation in colors in each skein, and in skeins with more variation in colors the looks can be very different depending on the batch.
Additional Items. Because my knitwear items are largely one of a kind my website does not always reflect all that I have available. Some makers strive to have set patterns and colorways for a season and while this works for some, I prefer to have fun making each unique. I sell at local shows and have yet to master the art of being able to track each items so that if it is sold in person it is removed from the website seamlessly. I welcome you to reach out if you are curious about color ways not listed, in some cases I can do custom work too. I frequently post on Instagram and Facebook under Unraveled Handknits, this can be a great place to give insights on my latest makes or as a reference for custom requests.
