This beanie is easy to make in a rainy and humid afternoon while watching your favourite series on the tele.
For the most part it has just been too hot to crochet with wool but I found this brand to be light and soft… see my tiny video to see just how lovely it drapes. I love the tweed texture… and of course I have to confess that I purchased the wool before I had a project in mind.
But I found a fun pattern with just enough stitch counting to keep me interested and I am looking forward to wearing this when this lovely endless summer has been well and truly enjoyed and we head into autumn.
The simple pattern is as follows:
- I used Alpaca Yarns Inca Spun Tweed 10ply Worsted, available here
- Inca Spun Tweed is a lovely soft and versatile 10 ply weight yarn which can be used in both garments, accessories and blankets. Lovely tweed palette for the young and old alike.
- Fibre: 40% Alpaca, 40% Merino, 20% Donegal Tweed
Weight: 10 ply / Worsted
Yardage: 100m per 50g balls
- I used 1 x 50g ball
- I used size 6mm crochet hook
