Knit Sandy Slouch Beanie Pattern

Updated: Apr 26, 2019


Today's Free pattern is the Sandy Slouch Beanie. This beautiful yarn was provided by Andean Sun Yarns. Their beautiful 100% Baby Alpaca yarn is also sold on Amazon! I chose the Medium Grey because I felt like it should be a neutral.


They have such beautiful Alpaca yarn! If you sign up for their newsletter, you qualify for 25% off your first order! How awesome is that? Check out their website & sign up for their newsletter here.


If you've never worked with Alpaca, you'd definitely want to try this natural fiber. This yarn is sooooo incredibly soft and call me crazy but I love that I can get it super fast from Amazon! I loved knitting with it and since I used the chunky weight, it didn't take too long!


Please visit any of my shops if you would like to purchase ad-free knitting and crochet PDF patterns in a convenient tri-fold format for on-the-go Knitting/Crocheting.
