The Turquoise Purse Beanie hand knit beanie by Bellish
Ball of yarn with artistically laid strand

With lightweight yarn, a slouchy fit and drapey Purse design, this hat is super comfortable and easy to wear. Combine this with bright, turquoise yarn and you have the perfect beanie to throw on in the morning when you need to brighten up your outfit.

For this beanie we used the Knit Picks yarn Palette in Tranquil. You can get the same yarn HERE!
