Green Wild Oats Beanie

Green Wild Oats Beanie

We might be biased, but this might just be the perfect beanie. Scroll down for the free pattern, and get the yarn here!


The Green Wild Oats Beanie hand knit beanie by Bellish
Ball of yarn with artistically laid strand

A cozy folded rib, Wild Oats for a hint of texture, and the squish of Worsted weight yarn; all tied together by the delightful pea-green colorway. Why not knit one for yourself, so you too can be the cutest pea in the whole darn pod!

For this pattern we used the Knit Picks yarn Wool of the Andes Worsted in Avocado. You can get the same yarn HERE!
