I love all sorts of fun & beautiful textured stitches but sometimes I just want to go back to basics. This beanie is crocheted using only single crochets. Of course, there are decrease sts but most of it is single crochet stitches.
I have been dying to use this yarn, Coney Island. I have a bad habbit of holding on to yarn I think is too pretty, afraid to use it.
Supplies: Super Bulky Yarn - I used all Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Coney Island US 10mm Crochet Hook Yarn Needle with large eye Stitch Marker Scissors Tape Measure Pom Pom Maker - I used Clover's KL Pom Maker
Abbreviations: ch - chain st(s) - stitch/stitches sl st - slip stitch sc - single crochet sc2tog - single crochet 2 together (decrease) - insert hook into stitch, pull up a loop, insert hook into next stitch and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.
Pattern: Chain 38 or as many chains until 22" slightly stretched (adjust number of chains for other sizes). Sl st to the first chain to join careful not to twist stitches.
Working in a continuous round:
ch1, 1 sc into each st around. Do not slip stitch to first sc. 1sc into that beginning sc (place marker here).
Continue to sc in each st in a continuous round until beanie measures 8.25"
Move marker as you start each new round (if needed).
Note: Depending on your tension, you may want to crochet less or more rounds to measure 8.25"
Decrease Rounds: Round 1: ch1, 1sc into the next 4 sts, sc2tog in the next 2 sts. Repeat from * around. sl st to the first sc. sc in any remaining sts.
Round 2: ch1, 1sc into the next 3 sts, sc2tog in the next 2 sts. Repeat from * around. sl st to the first sc. sc in any remaining sts.
Round 3: ch1, 1sc into the next 2 sts, sc2tog in the next 2 sts. Repeat from * around. sl st to the first sc. sc in any remaining sts.
Round 4: *sc into the next stitch, sc2tog. Repeat from * around. sc into any remaining sts. Round 5: sc2tog all the way around. sc into any remaining sts. Repeat round 5 until you have a few stitches left or you can no longer do sc2tog (due to tightness). Cut yarn leaving tail and using yarn needle, weave through remaining stitches and cinch up. Secure and weave in ends.
I didn't put a pom on this one but I usually do on 99% (maybe lol) of my beanies. Click below link to see Pom Pom tutorial.
Make a pom pom using a pom pom maker and attach to top of the hat. I used Clover's XL to make mine. I'm sort of obsessed with the over-sized pom poms :)
