Textured Crochet Sunflower Beanie
"I designed this textured beanie for the Holiday Maker’s Challenge, an annual event where we work together to finish our handmade Christmas gifts and there are 8 FREE downloadable PDF’s! This pattern is a bit more challenging than I normally add to the challenge, but I wanted something to stretch the skills of advanced beginners and give intermediate crocheters something that would keep them interested (because, yes, sometimes the easy patterns can get boring when you’ve been doing it a while!). So I designed this beanie using the mosaic crochet technique, which has you working front post double crochet over a background of single crochet in the back loop only. I really love how it turned out! I made mine in one single color, but you would make the snowflake in a different color and it would really pop! YARN OPTIONS FOR THIS TEXTURED CROCHET HAT I used We Crochet Heatherly Worsted for this project and I really love it! I actually bought the Heatherly Value Pack, which includes one of each color and I’m loving all of them. (Right now they are having a sale!) You can use any worsted weight yarn you have in your stash that gets gauge. I’m all about using up stash yarn, so grab out those worsted yarns and get swatching!
