Colorado Flag Beanie Pattern

One of the very beanies I wanted to make after first mastering the HDC beanie was this Colorado flag beanie, and on custom orders I’ve even added a pot leaf to the center of the “C” in the flag (see bottom of post), because, you know, it’s Colorado 😉

Assembly

Center the applique in the white stripe in the hat (I like to put it over the seam where each round is joined to hide it). Use a whipstitch to sew the applique on. Use the extra yarn to tie a knot and weave in the end.

I’ve made just the applique as a sew on patch for clothing as well 🙂
