Do you ever go online and just look at different knitting stitches? I am a knitting fanatic so seeing all of the different designs you can knit is just so fascinating to me. It definitely helps my creative gears start flowing. I came across the dandelion stitch and fell in love. All the heart eyes! I believe I said out loud, "I HAVE to have that stitch on a hat!" so, here we are! My first draft of this beanie turned out so perfect, I could not wait to share with you guys on Instagram and you all loved it too! *I also asked you all to help me with a name and oh my goodness you guys are so creative! It was very hard to choose one. After narrowing it down to two, I had you vote on my instastories and Pomshell Beanie was the winner! So thank you, and congratulations to the lady who won the free pattern!* On sale right now for a LIMITED TIME ONLY!
