The Little Red Beanie

In my last post I mentioned that a good friend of mine had asked me to make her a cute little beanie for a friend's two year old daughter. Well I finished it and here it is....

The Little Red Beanie, made using this pattern. Oh so cute!!

The Malabrigo was absolutely BEAUTIFUL to work with just as I had heard and I hardly made a dent in the ball with this super quick pattern! It feels sooo soft and squishy, I can't wait to give it to my friend to give to the little girl that will be calling this beanie hers!

The beanie flower was made using some left over Alpaca wool from my stash. It Its fluffy and whispy and adds nice texture to the look of the beanie. I decided to add a rustic-y wooden button as well to finish it off. I'm loving this beanie.

The pattern was so simple to follow and comes in sizes for a new born all the way through to a 10 year old child - gotta love that!!
