SAVANNAH BEANIE


I designed this beanie several years ago and have made more of them than I can count. Every time I look for the pattern I think of my sweet niece Savannah who has told me this is one of her favorites!!! I have made it with a larger hook to get a slouchy effect, or a smaller hook so that it fits snugly to the head (see pic at bottom of page). 

***Feel free to make as many of these as you want for profit, but remember to give credit to me, Amy B Stitched, or link back to this page!!***
