How to make a crochet & cross stitch beanie…
It doesn’t rely on tension, hook size, type of yarn blah de blah.
You just need to worry about making sure the rectangle of fabric measures…
I was lucky enough to have recipients easily lassoed by the measuring tape but if you’re making for a gift you might like to refer to this excellent size chart found via google this afternoon. Thanks Bev.
I knew the heart wasn’t going to fly so The Big Girl & I went for something très sophistiqué. The kid hasn’t taken the beanie off since it was gifted. Both The Little Guy & The Date think it’s fabulous (& those fellas are a tough craft audience).
There’s a pdf here if that helps you out.
It goes without saying that you don’t have to be able to crochet to make this beanie. You could follow the same formula & use some lovely wool jersey & the machine. That’d make it super quick.
