I was at Walmart one day looking through the yarn aisle (cause….ya know, I just couldn’t help myself) and I saw there was a bunch of sale yarn. I got a couple of this and couple of that and then went home and put them on my yarn shelves. I spent several days looking at them and wondering what to make with them. Then one day it hit me. I finally had a vision of what I wanted to make.
I wanted something simple that would go well with such a chunky yarn, so I made just a simple beanie. It’s meant to be fairly fitted, but also chunky and squishy.
This pattern is super easy and hopefully really easy to follow.
