Sun and Moon Beanie
"This pretty two toned hat celebrates the sun and the moon. Any child would love to wear this adorable bright beanie. The knit look is fabulous, and because it is crocheted it is a very quick and easy pattern that you can make in an evening while watching your favorite TV program. I made the hat with Impeccable yarn by Loops and Threads in Butterscotch and Aran but any worsted weight yellow and white yarn will do. Enjoy!"
