4. The Terry Beanie

Good morning lovelies,

Day 4, day 4. My little pile of hats is growing. Photos have started rolling in and I have to say, you guys, your hats are amazing! So many colours and patterns and already we're getting close to the 100 mark, and that's just the ones I know about! Well done!

So today's pattern is a nice little beanie, and great for those small balls of colour that need using up. My fabulous testers have made this in so many colours and it looks wonderful!
