For these beanies I used Michael’s Impeccable acrylic yarns. I usually never use acrylic but these may be getting some heavy use and need to be tossed in the wash 🙂 this is a free pattern that uses half double crochet and mini bean stitching. It’s available at christacodesign.com.
I just finished this knit-look super bulky slouch but I think it looks more just like a hat. The pattern by Jennifer Renaud was really interesting because of the way the rows increased and decreased.
