Quick-to-make base-layer beanie hat to keep your head warm. Perfect as a first and second base layer. The beanie hat fits easily under helmets. The women’s beanie hat has a more flattering cut and yet it fits easily under helmets too. The wide double layer gives very good protection over the earlobe and forehead. A nice project for leftover pieces of fabric.
Recommended fabrics: Single Jersey Merino wool, Merino wool Interlock or any other fabrics with a similar amount of hand-stretch of 15%.
Single Jersey Merino wool is thin, light-weight, stretchy, moisture absorbent and warm. The weight is 200g/sqm. The Interlock Merino wool is thicker, a little heavier, stretchier, moisture absorbent and warmer. Both of these fabrics have 15% lengthwise hand-stretch and are my favorite fabrics as Merino wool controls your body heat.
