The Hopeful Slouchy Beanie was created with the beginner in mind. In fact it should have a second name, the Easy Slouchy Beanie. The pattern works up quickly and is an absolute joy to make. In a world filled with so much chaos, my hope and prayer is that as you knit this beanie, it’ll remind you to keep hope alive no matter what you’re facing
