Sun Valley, Idaho is one of my most favorite places to visit. Home of the world’s first chairlift, it is a skiing town through and through. Of all the simple beanie patterns I have knit, this one best combines great fit, simple design, and versatility among different brands of yarn. Plus, the pattern is available in 5 sizes, so you can make a beanie for everyone in the family. Happy Knitting!
