The Sweeny Beanie
Meet my new favorite hat pattern: The Sweeney Beanie by Lindsay Allercott. (Pattern here). What I really like it how fast these work up while still giving you an interesting - and complex looking - design. Lindsay's pattern includes sizes from toddler to adult. Each hat took me only one evening to make.
Of course, I just HAD to make some fingerless mitts to coordinate.
If you are looking for a last minute gift with a lot of visual impact, this is the one you want to try!
