19. Helen Preemie Beanie



Good morning all and a warm welcome to day 19. Today's beanie, the Helen, is a simple pattern that uses alternating rounds of hdc and sc to make some stripes! I love how they are different sizes! It's also finished with the crab stitch, which I am totally in love with right now. It's such a simple way to add a bit of texture to a beanie!
