Chunky Double Brim Beanie – Knit Pattern

Chunky Double Brim Beanie - Knit PatternThe temperatures dropped quickly here in central Pennsylvania as though we had just skipped Fall and went straight from Summer to Winter. None the less, Fall is my favorite season of all and I wanted a hat that reflected that, but I also needed warmth. Thus, I have designed a chunky double brim beanie that provides the necessary warmth for these cold temperatures. The beanie has a slight slouch and features a double-tone for the inside brim which provides a nice contrast.
