Hot Heads Beanie

Hot Heads Beanie ~

Free Crochet Pattern

My daughter and I love wearing beanies and are always looking for new yarn to try out. Once I received Red Heart’s HEADS UP yarn, I immediately started thinking of what I could make with it. The more I looked at it and touched it I decided to make another beanie for my daughter. As you can tell she is happy to have another beanie and it’s in her favorite color! I hope you enjoy it!

I enjoy trying new things and when I first saw this bright soft yarn, I couldn’t help but think of hot pink and making a loud statement.

Level of Difficulty
Beginner/Intermediate
Yarn
Red Heart Heads Up, #5 bulky weight; 3.5 oz, color bright pink
Hook and Notions
Size Hook: K (6.5 mm), scissors and blunt needle
Measurement
8 inches x 10 inches ~ with 48 stitches
Abbreviations
Ch/chs = chain/chains
Sc = single crochet
Dc = double crochet
Hdc = half double crochet

Notes
Chain 1 at beginning of round does not count unless otherwise stated

Special Stitch
Reverse Single Crochet (aka~Crab Stitch)
: When you have completed your project and are ready for a finishing row or border you can do the reverse single crochet. This stitch is pretty distinctive; it looks ridged and makes a nice finishing option for crochet items. I personally love using this stitch for bag handles and baby things–it makes items sturdier. It looks great when worked as an edging using a contrasting or coordinating color.

This is worked from left to right (or opposite direction)

With right side of project facing you Chain 1, insert hook into next stitch to right, yarn over and pull through, (2 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops. Continue working * * until you have reached the end of project. Slip stitch into first chain 1 and fasten off, weave in ends.
