Rocky Mountain Beanie

Rocky Mountain Beanie


This beanie is the beanie I've been searching for my entire life: snug enough to be warm & cozy but loose enough have just the right amount of slouch, a fun & engaging stitch pattern, & it's just plain cute on top of it all. It's a quick knit in your favorite DK weight yarn, & is perfect for showing off speckles, variegation, & everything in between.

This pattern is also available via Ravelry & Etsy // Handknit beanies are available here // Custom order your own handknit beanie here
