A fun-to-knit beanie pattern will serve a knitter well during the winter season. Not only are beanies a great way to keep warm, but hand-knit hats are easy to make and always popular gifts. This beanie can be worn cuffed for a classic look or slouchy in a trendier style, so it’s the perfect hat for anyone. The textured stitch pattern keeps things interesting while you’re knitting, and it adds an attractive detail to the hat without being too flashy or feminine.
