    About Blenky

    Blenky is your quintessential Autumn/Winter hat. With its simple colourwork and effortless style, it’s as satisfying to knit as it is to wear. The brim features cozy twisted stitches that keep your ears snug and warm. Watch the colourwork pattern appear like frost on the tree branches as the intuitive pattern repeat encourages just one more row. Before you know it you are ready to decrease for the crown, and then there is the age old question. Should you add a pom pom?

    Blenky was designed to showcase your favourite color combos, and with nine sizes (child to adult) you can easily make a matching version for your little one. The only thing left to decide is what colours should you choose first?
