Cro-Stash Along- Week 1

This week’s Cro-simply-elegantStash Along pattern is the Simply Elegant Beanie. I love how easy it is to work up, the stitches are fairly simple, but the end result is so pretty! I’ve included a variety of sizes, so you can make one for everyone you can think of!

What you’ll need: – WW yarn (in one color or many!)   -I hook (or hook needed to meet gauge)   -Yarn needle

Notes: -If you are not a fan of the front post double crochet, feel free to just dc in the stitch instead. It won’t have the same texture, but will still be beautiful!

– Make sure your starting foundation chain is the same length as the hat size indicates. (If its too short, go up a hook size. Too long, go down a hook size)

– For a slouchier look, continue to repeat the rounds an extra 3-4 times before beginning the decrease rounds

– For a ridged band, front post sc every other stitch. (This works better for the larger sizes). 🙂

Stitches Used:

-Foundation Single crochet (fsc) -Single Crochet (sc) -Double Crochet (dc) -Chain (ch) -Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc)

 

Front post dc decrease (fp dec)- yarn over, insert hook around post and pull up loop. yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and insert hook around next post, yarn over and pull up loop, (yarn over and pull through 2 loops) twice.
