Dancing Aspen Beanie (3-6 months)-A Free Pattern

The Dancing Aspen Beanie is a 2 layered beanie that is sure to keep your little one nice and toasty now that it is starting to get cooler out. The bottom hat layer is a fitted beanie and the second overlay layer is a more lacy and open stitch that allows the color from the main hat to be seen through the openings in it. The color possibilities are endless with this hat, so have fun with it!!
