Finley Beanie

posted in: yarn craft | 0

Nobody loves my knitted hats more than my two year old daughter.  As soon as I finish a project, her first question is “Is that for me???”  Her next statement is “you knit too many hats mama!” Ugh.  I wish she would just stop growing right now.  I don’t want these years to end!
Finley Beanie - threadedtogether.comThis hat has become my go-to chunky pattern.  I make it with pom poms for girls, without for boys.  It looks best in natural colors (the one I wear daily in the cold is in gray).  This yarn holds up great to regular wear and tear and is perfectly washable.  A great chunky acrylic choice.
