The Elijah Beanie




Hello hello all and welcome to day 24.
Today's beanie is the Elijah ear flap beanie. It features a striped granny stitch and has sweet little ear flaps. You can make it with or without the ties.
The 2 rounds of colour create a zigzag look making it extra cute. This one would look great in any colour!
