Oh my. Isn't he a cutie?
This is Seth. Seth is almost 2 and he has been coming to my house to play and nap a few days a week for the last year and a half. He calls me Lah-lah, and I adore him.
So this little hat was made for Seth. I think he wears it well, don't you?
Some beanie basics:
|Look closely to see the seam.|
Rnd 4: ch 2 (will counts as the final stitch in the round), dc in next st, 2dc, [dc, 2dc]* Repeat around, ending with a final dc next to ch2 counting as the final 2dc in the pattern.
Rnd 5: ch 2 (final stitch), dc, dc, 2dc, [dc, dc, 2dc]* repeat around, ending with final dc next to ch2 as the final 2dc in the pattern.
|The alternating fpdc/bpdc makes a|
"ribbed" effect that I really liked.
Rnd 6-13: dc in each stitch, ss to top of ch2.
Rnd 14: ch 2,[ fpdc, bpdc] around, ss into top of ch 2.
Here is a tutorial on how to do the front post double crochet and the back post double crochet.
Rnd 15-17: repeat Rnd 14, fasten off and weave in ends.
Okay, here's my disclaimer. I am not a great pattern writer. I'm sure there are mistakes and unclear parts to this pattern. If you have any questions or would like to have something made clearer, I beg you to ask. I am not sensitive about having my mistakes pointed out. :) Thanks. If anyone actually makes this beanie.. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see your finished work. Send me a link or find me on ravelry @ Iowaycrochet. Thanks!!
