Wow day 15 and we've officially hit the halfway mark! This also means this is the last beanie pattern. Tomorrow, we move on to bonnets! Excited? Oh I am! I LOVE bonnets!
Today's beanie is the Betty beanie, and it's a nice simple one with a pretty trim. It's very quick to make, and great for using up the last part of a ball of yarn.
