Simple Tunisian Slouch Beanie Pattern + Tutorial.

Hi! I'm super excited to release this Tunisian Pattern. It was super fun to combine the different types of needle art in one pattern and the end result looks like knitted beanie.

I recorded a video tutorial to help with the pattern. My goal is that a beginner will crochet this beanie with flying colors!
