Easy Beanies for Tricky Yarn

Since we are entering the cold months (here in the Southern hemisphere) it's time to get some warm things made! I have two very easy beanies - that use 'tricky' yarns. They are only tricky as the can be intimidating! Fluffy yarns seem to be saved for knitting, but these two crochet patterns are a fun way to get some things made!

This time last year I published the Strawberry Fields Beanie - which used a fluffy mohair yarn. The yarn was a little challenging, but using moss stitch easily identifies where your hook should go. The easy repeats also mean it works up quicky

Over on the Yarnish Blog - where I am also blogging! I have just published a pattern for the Thistle Beanie. It has a similar construction, and similar challenges - the Softie yarn is also very fluffy, but makes an incredibly soft and comfortable beanie.

Both these beanie patterns are free, are worked flat and seamed, and can be made in a very short amount of time.

Each pattern is linked above - but if you'd like to add a project on Ravelry, or maybe just show some love by adding it to your favourites, the entries are here:

I look forward to seeing your beanies!

Happy Crocheting
