Simplicity Knit Beanie Knit Pattern

I am so excited to share my first knit pattern, the Simplicity Knit Beanie.  This beanie is a project that you will not be able to put down.  I designed this beanie because my husband Eric asked for a knit beanie.  Every year I have always crocheted him a new beanie and this year, he asked me to knit him a knit beanie after I discovered my love for knitting socks and now for knitting beanies!
