I mailed this first beanie this morning to my brother-in-law in Brazil (Shhh... don't tell Ryan), but will be making a few more of this same pattern as Christmas gifts. Then, I will move on to different ones such as these:
Aren't they gorgeous? Yes, the beanies, too!
The other patterns in Knit Beanies are beautiful as well, so this book is a keeper. The instructions are easy to follow and if I wasn't sure about something I just had to look at the end of the book in the Techniques and Abbreviations Glossary. Great reference for future projects!
I am so glad to be knitting again! Have a great weekend,
