I spent the better part of today (read: 5 hours) writing a pattern for the ultimate crochet beanie and testing it in each size. If you’re a crochet designer you can relate.
You try something, it doesn’t work.
You rip it out and try again.
And one more time until you’ve gotten it perfect.
That’s what I finally have in this pattern: PERFECTION. I’ve written 2-3 drafts of this type of hat, but it never turned out quite right. The hats were fine, they just weren’t exactly what I wanted.
Enter in this baby, the *insert cool name here*. It’s a basic beanie pattern in 4 different sizes – baby, child, women’s, and men’s. You use a size H crochet hook (basic) and any worsted weight yarn (basic). I wanted to create a (basic) pattern that would be a crochet’s “go-to” hat pattern.
So here it is:
Now here comes the fun part: I’ll be releasing the pattern on 11/1. Remember “insert cool name here”? That’s where I need your help!
