The Kim Beanie




Hello again all! Day 3 for the hat drive! Did you set a goal? Mine is 50!

Today's beanie is a lovely textured beanie that features a front post triple crochet! Don't worry, there is a link below to show you just how to do it. I love that this beanie has plenty of umph on the outside, while remaining smooth on the inside. This beanie also has a pretty good amount of stretch too it. Happy Crocheting!
