The basic bitch beanie story

As I work through my design journey.

I wanted to have a series of beginner patterns in my arsenal to offer newbies  something relatively easy to practice their newly learned skills with.

These patterns, of course will not be exclusively for newbies but for everyone. 

I know there have been many times in my life where I needed a quick gift, or just something super easy as a pallet cleanser between bigger projects.

Insert the Basic Bitch beanie. 

Combine a simple K1, P1 body with a small twist on the crown decrease to keep in pattern and you have a lovely little cap.

You may be wondering how I came up with the name… or maybe you aren’t but when I finished it and put it on the first thought that ran through my head was….bitch you cute but you basic . 

And there you have it.
