This is a pointed beanie like Tonttu (Gnome) that knitted with thin yarn. Very easy to knit, fast to finish… so I think this is suitable for a little gift for holiday! How about for someone you love? For yourself?
I knitted 2 samples of this pattern with different weight yarn. Big one knitted with Bulky weight yarn is for adult, and small one knitted with Aran weight yarn fits both of adults and children!
