Jingle Elf Festive Slouchy Beanie Pattern

I wanted to make a hat that was festive and jingly (it definitely needed bells lol), and got some inspiration from my Pineapple Pom Pom Beanie Pattern for the bottom of this hat. I added the bells (and of course, a pom pom) and this festive slouchy beanie was born!
