Snowfall Beanie Pattern



So, you may have noticed that I posted earlier this week - which is out of the norm for me.
The reason is this: I posted a pic of the snowflake you see on this beanie to a group on Facebook and people were asking for the pattern. So the Star Snowflake Pattern is here. Since we're going to be using it for this weeks' project, go ahead and pop over there and grab it. It's simple and quick.

I made this pattern with the month of January in mind. This color of blue just says "January" to me. Of course, you're free to use whatever color you want, just like always.

Before we start, here's something you should know:

=================================================================
My patterns on this blog will always be free for you to use.
Feel free to sell the finished project in person or online.
If you do sell online, please link back to the pattern here on my blog.
Don't try to sell my free patterns and don't claim my patterns as your own.
It's not only rude and immoral, it shows everyone else just how big a tool you are.
=================================================================

Now that that's out of the way, let's get to it, shall we?

Materials:
  • Red Hear Super Saver in Light Blue and White
  • Yarn Bee Soft Secret in White for the Star Snowflake
  • size I/5.5MM crochet hook for the hat

  • scissors
  • yarn/embroidery needle for weaving in ends
 Stitches used: (American Terminology. Here's a converter for you.)

Magic Circle instruction is here if you need it.

Make 3 Star Snowflakes. Leave a long tail (about 12") for sewing onto the hat.

Stitch the appliques onto the hat in a random falling pattern. Weave in all your ends.

An alternative to the random snowfall pattern would be to make 5 or 6 Snowflakes and stitch them around the edge of the hat.

Christmas is only 5 days away!

  
Peace and blessings to you and your families this Christmas. I pray you understand the Reason for the Season.
