Vixen Beanie

Updated: Dec 1, 2023

In honor of my first ever #preptober event, I want to share one of my favorite patterns with you! I have been working on this pattern for...well I've been making this pattern for months. Working out all the kinks, and just enjoying keeping it to myself. I admit I've been dragging my feet about writing up another pattern. I feel like life is so chaotic already I just didn't have my heart in it. PLUS, I couldn't think of a good name for it, a beanie is only as classy as it's name, right?! THEN, I added some reindeer antlers to it one day, a couple faux fur pom poms, and the Vixen Beanie got a name and I got the extra motivation I needed to finish this baby up.

So without further is the adult version of this fun, quick, versatile beanie pattern. I hope you fall in love with it as I have. If you would like 3 more sizes and to have your own copy in a PDF format, you can grab my pattern at Ravelry or my other shop.
