Free Pattern Friday: Go Bananas Beanie

BEFORE YOU GET STARTED

Krista Pagan aka @thezippyzebra designed this textured, chunky beanie using Darn Good Banana Fiber Yarn.  "I was so intrigued by the description of this yarn and let me tell you, it does not disappoint!"

Made from the sustainable fibers that are scraped from the bark of a banana tree and handspun by women’s co-ops in India, our vibrant Banana Fiber Yarn is a soft, plant based alternative.
