The Gabriel Beanie




Hello beautiful people, and hello to day 26!
Today's beanie is a sweet little newsboy cap. It uses the hdc granite stitch (also called the moss stitch when sc'd) It's a lovely little cap and works up super fast. The Gabriel beanie will fit a bub of 22 weeks gestation. I think it would look extra sweet with a button on the side, but I managed to pack all my buttons ready for the move, oops! The brim on this is big enough to sit out and look like a cap, but not too big that it overshadows bubs face.
