Question about Knit hats for Type 3b hair
Any curly hair knitters out there? Winter is coming up and I'd like to knit a beanie for a friends daughter but she's got type 3b hair and I want some advice about hat style and yarn type. She's mixed race and has lovely 3b curls that she wears long and natural. I was thinking of making a cute oversized beanie that wouldn't crush her hair, but I was wondering if anyone had tips on which yarn to use: acrylic, wool, alpaca, cotton... I don't want the hat to dry out or damage her hair. Thoughts?
