mainstays basic yarn beanie

The temps have certainly dropped this week, and I for one have been enjoying a great deal of time inside, working on hats, scarves, and this gorgeous winter hat in particular, the Malia Beanie

Y’all, I had the best time making this hat! It’s the absolute first time I had followed the Malia Beanie pattern 100% , not making my own alterations/ using the recommended yarn weight, etc. I am beyond pleased! The pattern is well written, easy to follow, and all around fabulous.

I seriously recommend anyone looking for a fashionable winter hat for a gift/commission etc to give this pattern a try. 

Mad props to the pattern writer, it has quickly become one of my absolute favorites.  It’s stunning and looks so good in a variety of colors, solids, stripes, etc. the possibilities are endless! I intend to make myself one in maroon sometime in the near future 😍🧶 It truly makes a stunning addition to any cold weather wardrobe! I would highly recommend one as a gift for any winter hat aficionado!

If you’re reading this and would like to own your own Malia Beanie without the time it takes to make one yourself, commissions are open. Check my Etsy out for more details, leave a comment below, or message me directly on IG or Facebook. 

If you’re interested in the type of yarn that was used for this project, never fear! I used one of my absolute favorites, Mainstays yarn. I can’t say enough about it – I’ll be writing a full featured review of this yarn very soon. I’m sure you can see from the photos, there is absolutely no fray, and the product comes out smooth and professional. That review and many more are soon to come…

So until then friends! Keep warm, and stay cozy 💋
