A classic beanie from less than one skein of your favorite fingering-weight sock yarn.
Available as a free Ravelry download HERE.
This beanie is clean and classic, nothing fancy in itself but perfect for showing off your fancy hand-dyed yarn. It has a wide cuff for extra warmth over the ears and is stretchy enough to fit most adult heads. I made mine out of Hedgehog Fiber Sock in the color way ’Concrete’. But I’m sure it will turn out beautifully from other finger- ing weight yarns as well.
