Thick and Toasty Rows of Puffed V and Puff 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 Rows of Puffed V and Puff Stitch Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a slender Size 6 (super bulky) yarn.

This beanie is made with Loops and Threads Charisma yarn in Daisy

This beanie is made with rows of skinny puff V and skinny Puff stitches down the body of the hat.  Skinny puff stitches work better for bulky yarns.

Stitches used:
