Jenn’s Beanie

by tolmema on July 5, 2014

I recently finished this beanie for a friend of mine. It’s a snug but slouchy beanie similar to one that I made for myself last winter.

I saved it for a really long time. I used some to make a Hayden Shirt sample, but I somehow snagged a stitch beyond repair and ended up frogging it…it then hid in my stash for another year or so.

I washed it with my Eucalan Wrapture jasmine wool wash so that it would smell amazing when she received it.

I may need to make a matching one for myself…it was hard to give this one away!
