This Team Spirit Thick and Quick beanie holds true to its name: it uses three strands of worsted weight yarn to mimic bulky yarn and you use a bigger hook to accommodate. The result is a warm, thick beanie that can work up in less than an hour!
You can decide to put a pom-pom on this beanie if you’d like; both solid and tri-colored pom-poms look great on them. I’ve made a few of these thick and quick beanies using three strands of one color as well! It’s a good stash busting pattern.
