Bright Pop Beanie (knit)

When it's cold and gray, a bright pop of color brightens everyone's day!

Pending Pom Pom
This super snuggly bulky yarn self-stripes. So much fun seeing what happens round after round!


Never mind the funny knot placement of my wrap job. Was planning on a double hammock tied at shoulder but didn't quite have the right tail lengths for the tie-off. Switched to tying under bum later!

Inspired by Purl Soho's "Super Soft Merino Hats for Everyone!" Pattern. Adapted the pattern for the yarn and knitting needles I used and made it longer for a slouchy look (also means it can be worn for more seasons since it's pretty stretchy and the length will continue to fit!).
