Since my daughter enlightened me on what a “beanie” is and is not, i have been trying different ways to make them. When we were kids, a beanie was just that: a beanie. Sort of like a baseball cap with no brim. |I found a really neat pattern at Ravelry that’s nice and fairly simple, but better yet, I found someone who made it and blogged it before me 🙂
Her name is Ami and here she is modelling the hat.
Since my new years resolution is to have more time to myself, I am going to get started on this hat right away. The pattern is free and can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/urban-jungle-crocheted-slouchy-beanie
A video tutorial on how to do the puff stitch can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlV9oCyG2T4

Happy Crochet New Year!
