Thick and Toasty Hourglass Granny Stitch Beanie (when the yarn varies…)

Sometimes, a Size 6 (super bulky) yarn can feel like a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or vice versa. Here is a pattern for our Thick and Toasty Hourglass Granny Stitch Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a thin Size 6 (super bulky). This beanie is made with rows of granny square stitches in the body of the hat, right side up and upside down, creating the shape of an hourglass.

This beanie is made with Isaac Mizrahi Craft Premier yarn in Morningside
