Elaborate Spring Beanie - 3-6 months {free crochet pattern}

Thursday 5 March 2015

Today, I let my creativity go wild and I created this really elaborate pattern for a spring beanie. I started with a small size for 3-6 month babies, and I will work my way up to adult size :) Don't get scared away by the pattern, after the first 6 rows, you just repeat 2-rows-pattern.

Elaborate Spring Beanie free crochet pattern

Puff stitch with 3 dc

This is a really easy and basic stitch that looks great in many crochet projects. So once you've learned it you can use it again and again :) I am not really a video-person so here is a written explanation:

Basically, you make 3 unfinished (only the first half) double crochet in one stitch, yarn over once more and draw yarn through all 4 loops that remained on your hook.

Step 1: Yarn over (yo), insert hook in st, yo, draw yarn through st, yo, draw yarn trough 2 loops (first unfinished dc, 2 loops remain on your hook)

Step2: Repeat Step 1 two more times, in the same stitch (3 unfinished dc, 4 loops remain on your hook)

Step 3: Yo, draw yarn through all four loops on your hook and your first puff stitch is finished :)
