Spring is coming (for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway) and it's time to think of springtime hats for when there is still a chill in the air. This beanie is the perfect accessory for a cardigan or poncho or to accessorize a special occasion outfit.

I have been knitting for 57 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together!
I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any of your questions or concerns.
You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern.
Thank you and happy knitting!
