RDH Marble Beanie

I wasn’t really sure what to get my dad for Christmas this year. So, I decided to make him this beanie. While working on the beanie I decided he should have a matching scarf. Be sure to keep an out eye for the scarf!

I love the way it is reversible. One side has a rigged look and if you turn it inside out it has a smooth look. This beanie will make a great gift! Did I mention it’s a one skein project? That’s right, you only need a small amount of yarn to make this fabulous beanie. Enjoy!

Level of Difficulty
Beginner/Intermediate

Yarn
I used, Ella Rae Seasons Colour # 01, roughly 1.6 oz (so hold on to the rest of that yarn – I’ll be back later to tell you how to use the left over)

Hook and Notions
Hook Size: J (6mm), scissors and yarn needle (to weave in ends)

Gauge
11 hdc = 4 inches

Size
22 inches circumference and 8 inches long (crown to brim)

Special Stitches
FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet): A post stitch is shorter than a normal stitch, you make the turning chain with one chain stitch less than the normal turning chain requires. Yarn over (yo) and insert your hook from front to back between the posts of the first and second double crochet of the row below, and then from back to front again between the posts of the second and third stitches. (The hook should now be positioned horizontally behind the double crochet that you’re working around.) Yarn over and draw the yarn around the post of the stitch. You now have 3 loops on the hook. Yarn over and draw the yarn through the 2 loops on the hook, twice. One front post double crochet (FP dc) is complete.

Notes
When I first made this beanie in 2014 I used one skein of Lion Brand, Tweed Stripes ~ Marble. However, you may use any #5 Bulky weight yarn. Just be sure to check your gauge and measurements otherwise your beanie may not fit accordingly.

Chain 2 at beginning of round counts as a hdc unless otherwise stated.
Chain 3 at beginning of round counts as a dc unless otherwise stated.

Abbreviations
Ch/chs = chain/chains
