This pattern was written for the Sunset Crochet Fourth Annual Christmas Charity Challenge and I am just finally getting around to publishing it here! Better late than never, right!? I really am fond of this pattern! The snowflake design was a happy accident. I didn't set out with the intention of it turning out this way. Don't you love it when that happens?
This pattern is currently only available in Newborn Size, but I'm already playing around in my head with all the different ways this pattern would work in different patterns! Stay tuned...!!! Until then, here is the Newborn Snowflake Beanie pattern just for you, and any Winter babies you may be hooking for!
