Free Beannie Pattern

 On my long road trip to Oregon from the Bay Area I was able to knit three of these beannies. My husband did all the driving and I sat content to have something to do on our long journey. After finishing two beannies I ran out of yarn and stopped off in Eugene and purchased this yarn at a great Knitting Store called  Soft Horizons  The staff were super friendly and informative.  Definitely a gem and just a few blocks from The University of Oregon.  Great campus by the way! I call it this one the  EUGENE BEANNIE! These beannies are super easy to make very trendy right now.  Free pattern below...
