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.
The yarn I used has an interesting story. I bought it in Cody, Wyoming during a family trip when I first started crafting. It was the first skein of high-quality yarn that I ever purchased that needed to be wound into balls.
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!
