Amanda’s Pony Tail Beanie Hat – Free Knitting Pattern
It is with great delight we share this amazing fresh new pattern with you – for free! Now you can make your own pony tail beanie!
Lovely Amanda Spooner has made this herself, on behalf of Garney Spooner Wool Shop in Whanganui. Now let me stop there and take a moment to acknowledge just how wonderful this lady is, and how much she is adored by not only her local community – but by me also. There are only a few times in your life that you will meet someone as spectacular as Amanda, and what a privilege it is to be collabing with her in this woolly world we work in.
So here we have her first official pattern release – but just so you know, we haven’t seen all her work just yet… there is more coming!
