A Summer Beanie for Martin


My grandson Marty was in need of a new beanie. His hair has grown out, so it gets in the way when he is eating. He gets very upset by it. His Mama asks him if he wants his hair cut, but he says no. So Mama puts on his chevron beanie to keep his hair away from his mouth while he eats. It is summer now and he gets a bit hot wearing his beanie. So his Mama suggested I make him a summery type beanie.

I had some sport weight yarn just sitting around so I would use it to make a light summer beanie.I had two different patterns in mind that I could use. I checked the first one but I thought this one’s holes were too big. The next pattern was just what I had in mind. It fit the bill.
