This Golden Beanie features a beautiful texture and is worked in a unique way: with a magic ring or a chain ring at the top!
The ring at the top makes it really easy when it comes to closing the top of your hat. I have worked a few hats in this way, including the popular Rocky Beanie Crochet Pattern. It’s a great way to work a hat as it is easily customizable. I will include a hat sizing chart down below in case you would like to try this pattern out in a variety of sizes.
