I Have A Heart!

 

I have used this pattern 3 other times. The first time I was not very skilled at Front Post Double Crochet. I just used Double crochet so the beanie turned out to be a slouchie. I made it using Caron Simply Soft Yarn in white and blue for my grandson, Martin. Here is how it turned out.

My daughter liked how it turned out and requested one made the same way. I did hers in black and bon bon print for the heart. I had to redo it because I made the opening to small and it squished her head. It looks great now that was remedied.

I was now a bit further into my resurgence of my crocheting, so I thought I would give this beanie another go using the proper front post double crochet stitch. I followed the 2T – 3T pattern to make another beanie for my grandson. I started one then pulled it out because I didn’t like how it was looking carrying the red along showed through in the white and carrying the white along in the red messed up the look of the heart. I then just left the unused color hang and picked it back up later.

That brings us to the one I made for myself. I really liked this pattern. It makes a thick beanie without having to use two strands held together. I  used a little over 3 ounces of 4 ply worsted weight yarn for the main color though, so make sure you start with a fresh skein. You may use a little more or less then that depending on how tight you crochet.

I followed the pattern for the adult size. I followed it to the letter no alterations done on my part. I think it turned out great!

    • I just clicked on the link myself. I also get the domain has expired message. This means that the person who had the website did not pay to renew to keep the domain. I had no idea about this. I am sad that she did not chose to renew, But you never know what may be going on in a fellow bloggers personal life and they may have not been able to continue to keep their site open. I do know that she had not posted new things for a very long time. I am sorry you were unable to get the pattern.
