THE BROADWAY SLOUCHY BEANIE

Earlier this week, I released The Broadway Cowl. Have you seen it? If not, you can check it out here! Like what I said in that post, I have a beanie that match with it and that’s what we are going to talk about today! I called it The Broadway Slouchy Beanie.

This project is still in collaboration with my good yarny-friend Shelly from Daisy Stitch Co. Visit here site and see the amazing hand-dyed yarns she has created. She is also offering a great price for The Boradway Patterns + Yarn Kit for the entire month of November and the best thing is you can choose the color(s) you want!

I want to thank my amazing tester team for helping me make this set pattern a great one! You can check their finished projects on my Ravelry and/or Instagram.
