I’m a crocheter at heart but as of late I’ve been dabbling with knitting ever since I mastered (okay not really mastered but at least can get by) circular needles. I had always been intimidated by circular needles but thanks to Mary and my recent obsession with slouch beanies I worked up the nerve to try. With a few out-a-book beanies under my belt I felt confident enough to create my own. I got that opportunity during a recent, very long, road trip. Inspired by the looks of the latest fashions I decided to try to incorporate the ruched look into a beanie. Not knowing how it would turn out I used some bargain bin yarn. The final look is stunning and makes the bargain yarn look like a million bucks. I often get compliments when I wear this test beanie. I will definitely be creating this in different colors… can someone say Vanna’s Glamour Yarn!
