A few beanies for Christmas and beyond

This is a cabled beanie from the new book I bought….Over 30 Trendy, Classic and Sporty Accessories for All Ages

I did not follow the pattern for the in between stitches as her pattern goes sideways and my nieces (the last one is the same pattern, different beanie for different niece) wanted the cables to go up and down. This one is for Sandra. This one and the one at the bottom is called Aspen Beanie.

Then is called a Grid beanie.  Was pretty easy for sure.  They all seem to come out pretty large as I think the hats seem to "sit" on the head rather than stretch to hold. This is going to my nephew Patrick.

I made another "Seahawk" beanie for Stephanie and bought a Bernat Pom Pom. It's cute, but hard to attach where it doesn't wobble. No clue about washing as forgot to check. The pattern here is Backcountry Beanie.

This is me modeling the next beanie for my niece Megan.  I also made the band longer as well as using a smaller hook (down two sizes for first two rows then down another for another two rows, then down one more for a hdc row.  Seems to hug better and have a better look.

Have a safe and joyous New Year!
