I made this little cutie today at work. I used the Quick Easy Winter Beanie pattern. It's made with Promo Fil yarn in Black and an I hook. This is the second time I've used this brand of yarn to make something and I have to admit, that it has a good amount of "stretch" to it and it is great for hats. I found this brand of yarn at Wal-Mart. It's $1 for a 2.5 oz. skein.
