My popular Slouchy Beanie Knitting Pattern will help you make great gifts with my free knitting pattern and video tutorial. This is a classic design for adults that can be customized with various yarn colors and even stripes. Looks great on men and women alike. I was inspired to design this simple hat after seeing the character Hazel wearing a similar beanie in ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ movie.
