How does that saying go? “You can never have too many [fill in the blank].” Friends? Shoes? I daresay that accessory loving stitchers everywhere would say HATS. Hats are the perfect instant gratification project to use up those single/double skeins in your stash and to practice a new-to-you technique.
Coming in September, Crochet Boutique: Hats will give you 25 more reasons to say “you can never have enough hats!” From berets and beanies to caps and hoods, designer Rachael Oglesby has created something for everyone. There are patterns for women and men, for beginner and adventurous stitchers, and for those who are new to crochet there’s a handy guide that illustrates basic stitches.
I love the look (and the name!) of the pineapple stitch and am already planning out my outfits for the Pineapple Beret.
Granny squares are a classic and the Granny Square Beanie is the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary with its slouchy shape.
I think the Bear Cub Beanie speaks for itself. Cute overload?
