This really sweet baby slouch beanie is worked in the round and finished with a 3-needle bind off. It’s a great gift for new parents. I designed this simple hat for my tie-dyed yarn, Cotton Candy, available in my Etsy Shop: ShainaBilowDesigns
It would be very adorable in any other sport weight, though I don’t know if the colors would pool the same way!
