I needed a new hat this winter and couldn’t find one I liked to buy, so decided to make one instead. I finished it on the first day of Spring…
I don’t usually follow patterns for crochet. Or I do, then get bored and change them, then everything goes wrong.. but I persisted with this one. It’s the Bellisfaire Beanie from Crochet One-Skein Wonders. Simple, easy to follow pattern, and used well under one skein of the wool I used.
The trickiest bit was getting the starting chain right, and not twisted. That took me a couple of attempts. Once it was done, the bulk of it was simple.
Quite pleased with how it’s turned out, although it does seem to have turned me into a hipster. I’m not too bothered, it goes with my coat and keeps my ears warm!
