Simple Beanie Cap

Image of Simple Beanie Cap Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This simple beanie is fast and easy to make and was a request from a co worker at the Ski Resort I work at. She wanted a beanie to match her Fingerless Mittens I made for her last year. So this Beanie is made to match the Fingerless Mittens on this site.
