Shell Stitch Beanie

This is a pattern for the shell stitch beanie in my previous post. I LOVE this beanie because it stitches up quickly and adds a great texture to the average beanie. The pattern here is for a 0-3 months size and a child size (3-10 years), but I hope to add in the other sizes when I find a moment. Please let me know if something doesn't work up right. As always, I would love to see pics of final creations!
