A slouchy beanie for the masses. I made the first as a going away gift for my nephew Weston when he went off to college in Montana. I liked it so much I made another for myself! Now the whole neighborhood wants one!
It is easy to swap out yarns. We’ve made it with gauges from 5-6 sts per inch over the color work pattern with great sucess!
