Pinecrest Beanie-A Free Pattern

Today is my day for the Christmas Hat CAL hosted by Katie of Salty Pearl Crochet and Heather of The Unraveled Mitten, and I am so excited about this new hat pattern! I was originally going to go with a different idea, but as I was looking through one of my stitch books, this wonderful triangle shaped stitch jumped out at me! I thought if made in green it would look just like pine trees. For the sake of the Christmas theme, I made 2 hats with the upward pointed triangles  in green: one with green and white, and one with green, white, and red. Both looked amazing! I also made another one for myself in gray and white. This hat was super fun to mix up colors with. I think any color combination would look great, making this not just a hat for the holidays.
