The Cross Beanie Pattern

Happy Easter friends! We’re enjoying a lovely long weekend here in the UK with Good Friday and Easter Monday being public holidays. Definitely a very much welcomed break.

Thought I’ll share a free pattern that I  created and wrote almost two years ago during Easter – The Cross Beanie. For me as a Christian, and for Christians the world over, the Cross recalls the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the redeeming benefits of His love for humanity and His death on the Cross of Calvary.

The Cross Beanie is a simple hat pattern with the cross knitted in a contrast colour. It uses super chunky yarn and is a quick project to work on.
