The temperature got to 46.4 degrees C today. So why am I showing you winter beanies? There is absolutely no logic to it. These are crocheted from the Divine Hat pattern. I made them a couple of weeks ago, while we were away on holidays, in another heatwave. My mission was to use up some leftover balls of yarn while testing out a new pattern.
Firstly, in Patons Jet:
I love the spiral going down this hat. It is a really easy pattern, with a repeat that is easily memorised, and only took about two hours to work up. The crocheted ribbing around the bottom is effective too. I did run out yarn with about four stitches left to go – and I’m going to leave it that way. I’ll just made sure that the gap is at the back.
I made up the patterns for the flowers, determined to use up every last scrap of this yarn.
I left off the last row of ribbing, as in this yarn it was generously sized.
This pattern looks great on either gender (maybe without the flowers for the boys). I now have another SIX of these to make! One for each of my girls, one for my cousin Freya (hers will be black with loads of colourful flowers attached) amd one for each of Freya’s three boys. Will I be quite so enamoured of the pattern by the time I am done?
