Sew each circle to the side of the visor. Thread tapestry needle & weave yarn through outside stitches of circle and your beanie.
Pattern Notes: You can use any beanie pattern in place of mine to create your desired design & shape. This pattern fits standard adult size.
I am really happy with the way this design turned out! I planned to create the visor so that it could flip down on your face – but couldn’t quite work that out. I used the classic Cyclops colors, however, you can of course switch it up!
