Thick and Toasty Double V Stitch Beanie (for 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 variation of our pattern for a Thick and Toasty Double V Stitch Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a slender Size 6 (super bulky) yarn.

This beanie is made with Caron Colorama O’Go yarn in Baja and Bernat Softee Chunky Twist yarn in Slate.

This beanie is made with Double V stitches in the body of the hat.
