Thick and Toasty Long Triple Interlocking Ribbed 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 Long Triple Interlocking Ribbed Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a slender Size 6 (super bulky) yarn.

This beanie is made with Berrocco Duo yarn in color 3222
