It’s true that I may have bought half of my local JoAnn’s stock? to make my latest projects.? Lol! Anyway, this hat turned out to be so squishy and super cute! It uses the “Raised Ripple” stitch that I recently shared with you (tutorial here).? It’s a stunning stitch that is full of texture and warmth and can work for so many different projects. This is one of them!MY LATEST VIDEOSAs you can see in the picture above, I made a scarf which matches the beanie as well which you can also find on the blog (here).You’ll see more details about how to crochet this beanie in the pattern notes below, but let me give you the quick lowdown. This hat really isn’t for beginner crocheters as it’s important to keep your stitch count correct, however, if you’re fairly experienced it should be pretty fun! It’s cool to see how the Raised Ripples stitch works up as you complete each round.? The contrasting texture is made with half double crochet stitches through the back loop only.? There’s no increasing or decreasing so it’s a fairly straight forward pattern without any shaping needed.Remember that if you need extra help, you can find a stitch tutorial for the Raised Ripple stitch on the blog (here).? If you can work the stitch pattern flat with some practice, you will be able to do it in the round as well. There is only a a slight modification to the pattern in the round so that the join comes together seamlessly.
