Knit Lawsons Beanie Pattern & Tutorial

Hi there! It's that time again to donate Blue hats to Lion Brand Yarn for National Bullying Prevention Month (October)! For more info on donating your hats, please click here. As usual a portion of sales are donated for this cause!

This project is sponsored by but the design and my opinions are my own.

This post contains affiliate links. This means I receive a small amount from purchases you make through these links at no extra cost to you. Please see bottom of post for more information on privacy and disclosures.

One of my all time favorite Lion Brand Yarn is the Wool-Ease Thick and Quick so it's no surprise that I used this yarn!

I started designing using just one color but then I thought it might look cool with 2 colors so I used Hometown USA (it's what I had while camping) and I also loved it!

Don't forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me over on Instagram @Designsbyphanessa. It's the platform I use the most to announce new patterns, request for testers and host giveaways!

I have free patterns on my blog and ad-free pdfs in my shops. Visit today and save them to your favorites!
