Pattern Review: The Parker Beanie

I’m crocheting all the baby hats for my local NICU. This pattern paired with the sizing chart is making my life so much easier! I highly recommend this pattern. Ashleigh makes it so easy to follow along and you get to learn new techniques when you watch her YouTube video that’s included. She can make one hat within 20 minutes! It still takes me about an hour for one. Slow maker over here, lol. Links and pattern below.
