Crochet Spiked Slouch Beanie Pattern & Giveaway!!!

Hi & welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by! I was asked by Michelle to participate in the Blog Hop this year! I seem to have less and less time each year as my kiddos get older and get more involved with activities, etc. I didn't want to pass up this opportunity because most of you know, there's no way I won't find time for my needle art!

This year's theme is the Spike Stitch. Since I had very little time, I decided to make a beanie (surprise, surprise, right?) LOL.

There are several bloggers involved in this Blog Hop and each designer provides a pattern. HUGE thanks to Lion Brand Yarn for sponsoring the Blog Hop and you know I'm a HUGE fan of Lion Brand and I love working with them.

BRIM | Smaller hook size | Video Tutorial

(Starting with any color)

Foundation: Ch10 (or as tall as you want your brim)

Row 1: 1sc into the 2nd ch from the hook and into each ch to the end. Ch1 and turn (9 sts)

Row 2-65: 1sc tbl of the first st and every st to the end, Ch1 and turn (9 sts)

Adjust size by crocheting less/more rows for a smaller/larger circumference depending on your tension. Measure brim while stretched.

Seaming the brim | Video Tutorial

Align the 2 short ends together. Sew the two short ends of the brim together by working a sl st through the “chain” end of the brim and tbl of the other end of the brim. Flip brim inside out so the seam is on the inside.
