I love creating things that can be made in a variety of ways. This beanie can be a long tail or regular top beanie, plus a few embellishments are included in the pattern.
Look how cute it is for St. Patrick’s Day!
About The Pattern
This pattern is written as a “choose your own ending” to allow several options for all sizes. It includes sizes 3 months – adult, a flower pattern and a fun embellishment for boys too!
Don’t let it fool you…the tail is not done with icord or by working tiny little circles. I have been playing with a new way to get this look that so many knit hats have. I love it! You also can create any length tail, or leave it off completely for a rounded top beanie.
