Barrow Beanie (Bulky Weight)
Updated: Mar 13, 2020
Knit Rib hats are a classic wardrobe staple and wearable by the whole family. This Crochet hat is a perfect duplicate for a faux Knit Fishermans Rib Beanie, made with a hook. I included a decrease in the stitching pattern for a shaped crown. And even though this hat is worked flat, it has an invisible seam. This works up so quickly and comes in sizes from Toddler to Adult!

A BIT OF HISTORY BEHIND THE NAME:
Barrow-in-Furness, commonly known as Barrow, is a town and borough in Cumbria, England. In the Middle Ages, Barrow was a small hamlet within the Parish of Dalton-in-Furness with Furness Abbey. Barrow and the surrounding area has been settled non-continuously for several millennia with evidence of Neolithic inhabitants on Walney Island. Despite a rich history of Roman settlement across Cumbria and the discovery of related artefacts in the Barrow area, no buildings or structures have been found to support the idea of a functioning Roman community on the Furness peninsula. The Furness Hoard discovery of Viking silver coins and other artefacts in 2011 provided significant archaeological evidence of Norse settlement in the early 9th century.
