Knit Bella Slouch Beanie Pattern & Tutorial

Hi Friends! The Knit Bella Slouch Beanie is live! It's been awhile since I've knitted a chunky beanie. I know that it's still cold somewhere even though it's been waring up here.

This post contains affiliate links. Please see bottom of post for more information.

I used Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick and Quick, a wool blend. Another great option is Hometown USA 100% acrylic yarn.

You can find the pdf pattern in my shops or save it as a favorite. Links to video and resources are provided in the pdf pattern as well.
