Don’t Waste It Beanie

I don’t like to waste my yarn scraps at all so I keep them in one drawer. (I think all of YOU who’s crocheting can relate :D) My drawer was getting full so I decided to use some of those scraps up and TA-DA! that’s how I created this super easy beanie design.

Difficulty:          

Easy / Advanced Beginner

Size:                                    

Regular Adult

Materials needed:

Stitches used and Abbreviations:

MR = magic ring

CH = chain

ST = stitch

SK= skip

SLST = slip stitch

SC3LO = single crochet 3rd loop only

HDC = half double crochet

DC = double crochet

FPDC = front post double crochet

BPDC = back post double crochet

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols

Additional terms/ Special Stitches:

Stitching in the 3rd loop only of HDC:

Look at the top of the stitch and locate the sideways ”V”, bend the stitch to look at the back and you should see another ”V”. You will be working into the back loop of that ”V”. This creates a nice, braided look.

Front Post Double Crochet:

Yarn over, insert your hook from the front around the post of given stitch, from right to left, yarn over and finish your double crochet as usual.

Back Post Double Crochet:

Yarn over, insert your hook from the back around the post of given stitch, yarn over and finish your  double crochet as usual.

Gauge:

4 DC = 1”

Additional notes:

  • If a round starts with a Chain 1 or 2, that is not counted as a stitch.
  • US terms used throughout
  • When you’re about to work in a stitch with a stitch marker in it, just simply take it out, I won’t include a separate note for that J
  • Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern or state someting which can be unclear at first read
