This beanie is super easy to knit and uses one full skein of my bulky yarn. If you want to make it slouchy you’ll need 2 skeins.
These beanies work up quickly. I think they work well with hand dyed yarn. I made myself one in Fangs at Midnight, then had to make another because my daughter kept stealing it.
