Chunky Beanie

RV Camping over at Fort Ebey this weekend was rather chilly, but clear enough the first day for us to view the paragliders. People say we look like we go on alot of trips, however it is more that we are fortunate to live in the Pacific Northwest where scenes like this are but a short drive away. This campground is near Deception Pass. It has alot of "history" and was an unused fort in WWII.
Cold and breezy,....so I made a hat pattern in one day and wore it to bed that night. Brr!This one is Chunky Knit Beanie, from a friend to knit with (link on the right). Free and easy pattern!

Used Lion Brand Wool-Ease, Thick and Quick Yarn in Barley.
Size 15 circular needles.
Cast on for size Large. Garter stitch and stockinette. Seam up the side. Voila!
And on the way into town we "had" to stop at Starbucks and I found a woolie friend...

I made a similar hat like that for our chemo hat collection at the LYS. It's a very quick knit.

Cute hat! And what gorgeous scenery! Glad you guys made it out into the outdoors - even in spite of the chilliness! We were going to go camping this weekend but too much rain! So hopefully the weekend after Easter.
