Hi, Everyone!

I have another free pattern for you. I’ve been wanting to release this free pattern for a few weeks but you know life gets in the way. With traveling, a sprained ankle, and a few colds its been pushed back but its here!

This is a quicker knit, using larger needles along with the super bulky yarn we all know I love. I love knitting this beanie and can whip one up in about 45 minutes. They almost sold out at my last market and I ended up keeping one for myself when I went on a family trip to Cleveland.

If you’ve made the Jordan Ear Warmer Pattern this is the beanie version and uses the same stitch for texture.

The the printable pdf of this pattern is available on my Etsy.
