It's October 3rd. That can only mean one thing. National Mean Girls Day is in full swing. As a card-holding member of Gen Y, Mean Girls quotes are part of my DNA. That's just like, the rules of Millennialism. I know EVERY word. Being such an integral part of my childhood, I knew I had to pay homage to my favorite cult classic in some way. In comes The Regina Beanie. Sure, Caty is cute, Gretchen is fetch, and Janis has her moments, But Regina? She is an Icon. I sat back and reflected on this holy day thinking "What Would Regina Do?" The only answer that came to mind is that she would name a beanie after herself and give it for free to remind everyone why she is the leader of the plastics.
This easy worsted weight beanie is a perfect unisex capsule accessory for the cooler months. It will quickly become a staple of anyone you gift it to, including yourself. The 1x1 ribbing of the body gives a bit of texture, but is streamlined enough to showcase all kinds of yarns, including variegated and stripes. Top it off with a pompom, add rows for slouch, play around with yarn scraps, or work it stitch by stitch. The possibilities are endless. Click the button below to download the pattern for free!
