This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

This warm, winter beanie is a quick knit combining a few easy structured stitch patterns. Just in time for our winter weather, it has snowflakes and frosty motifs to keep you warm while you play. This design is inspired by a poncho I knit last year; I decided to knit a hat to match.

The pattern comes with sizes from XS to XXL adult, based on my original beanie knit with Aran/heavy worsted weight yarn. You can also knit the pattern on gauge, which means that you may use a wide range of yarn qualities and still get sizes from children - adult.
