Beautiful slouch beanie pattern

I don’t know about you, but I always prioritise knits for me LAST. I just never seem to make the time, and it’s really frustrating because I’ll spend the winter with nippy ears and blue fingers while everyone around me is cosy warm with my gloves and beanies.

But when I saw this gorgeous yarn from One of a Kind Yarns I just knew this purple, blue and grey variegated merino wool wanted to be with ME. And I wanted a cosy, squishy, beautiful beanie for cold game drives in the Kruger and I wanted a relatively easy pattern that would be a fun and importantly a quick knit.

I found this gorgeous pattern on Ravelry called ‘Perennial‘ and it ticked all the boxes. I started to knit it a few months ago, and then a friend had a baby or I got excited by something else and the knit got pushed into my WIP drawer.

Then this holiday I decided FLIP IT. Let this be the WIP trip! I brought a few half-finished projects and made this one a priority. I love how it turned out.

This stunning lady in all these photos isn’t ME, by the way. This is the gorgeous Dayle and her boyfriend (my brother Angus).

And if you’re really curious… here’s one of me in the beanie, hot off the needles!
