    About Oisin

    Oisin (Osh-een) by Meghan Babin is the mate to her Ailm scarf, featuring the same cables in our worsted weight Forge for a cozy, handsome beanie for all. Made with a deep, squishy fold-over brim, the cables flow naturally from the brim ribbing and decrease away seamlessly into the crown. This beanie is worked in the round from the bottom up beginning with an optional tubular cast on for a polished finish. The hat is worked from a chart through the crown decreases for a straightforward but eye-catching project.

    Designed for Hudson + West Co's Forge - you need 1 skein.

    It’s waiting to be done. The Forge feels wonderful and looking forward to knitting it. Disappointed my golden yellow forge never made it to me. Would love to do Oisin in that

    Just beautiful!

    I totally loved to knit this pattern. It‘s interesting but at the same time not too busy. Just the right amount of repetition and new stuff going on. Especially how the pattern emerge into the crown is so stunning. A well written pattern which I can highly recommend!
