Candy Cane Beanie


Hello friends! my new post is both simple and fun, the concept is inspired by Christmas sweets. I tried to make the design as simple and as quick to make as possible; you know the year is about to end, and this beanie would be perfect to make as a last minute gift. All my other unfinished Christmas project ideas will be stored away for next year, until then, I hope you all have a wonderful new year!
