40 min beanie {free pattern}

Beanie in less than an hour
Since I have done with this beanie, I wore it a couple times to work. I just hate freezing: in winter I am not dressing pretty, although I love skirts with colorful tights, after december I can't wear them. The prettiest outfit I can make are my thermo leggings with boots and long-sleeve tunic (with turtleneck sweater under). That's why I am so into accessories!

I made this beanie after Christmas, now it is time to share the easy peasy pattern. It is so quick, it took just 40 minutes to complete! The pattern made up from 11 rounds with 36 stitches in the widest point. I attached a very simple flower to the beanie to give a pretty touch.

Tip: If you don't have bulky yarn like this, just work with 3 strands wortsted weight yarn holding together. 

I am ready for the cold weeks!

Wish you happy crocheting!

It is just one bulky ball or 3 x half ball of worsted weigh yarn: a great stash-buster project!
