I recently rereleased one of my older patterns the Ribbed Beanie, for a newer version of this pattern that calls for one hank of Bijou Basin Lhasa.  SAVE 15% OFF the Ribbed Beanie pattern today through Sunday, June 21, 2015 Pacific Time – No coupon code needed, Sale on Ravelry only.

Finished Measurements:

Length: 8”
Circumference: 22”

Materials:
Size 4 U.S. needles

Yarn:
1 Hank Bijou Basin Ranch (250 yards, 75% yak down, 25% bamboo), shown in #49 Dinna Fash.
or
1 Hank Pagewood Farm Glacier Bay (100% Superwash merino wool, 450 yards), shown in Denim.

Gauge:
24 sts and 30 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch

This is a gorgeous blend of 75% yak (my personal favorite) and 25% bamboo.  With 250 yards to a hank and making this a one skein project, how can you go wrong?  Not only is this yarn deliciously soft, and supple but the yak down yields a gorgeous halo to the yarn which gives your finished project a hint of delicacy.  Even though this yarn seems dainty it actually pretty strong.  The 25% bamboo content allows for the fiber blend to take on rich and saturated colors and allows for the strength you need in your knitting and finished projects.  It also allows for wonderfully unexpected stitch definition, which made this the perfect yarn for the Ribbed Beanie pattern. The good people over at Bijou Basin sent me an extra hank of this Lhasa yarn.  I was going to knit another Ribbed Beanie out of it, but I thought I’d share the joy that is Lhasa with you folks.  One lucky winner will win one yummy hank of Bijou Basin Lhasa.  Learn how you can win here!
