Chevron Beanie

This Chevron Beanie is super cute and is so quick to work up!  You could easily complete a hat or two in an evening!

Chevron Beanie - KatiDCreations.com

This darling Chevron Beanie would be a great scrap buster project to help use up those small amounts of yarn you just can’t bring yourself to get rid of!

As you can see the Brim of the hat does not go all the way around the back of the hat which makes it much less bulky!  Another great feature of this hat is that there is no reducing to close the hat!  That’s right! Your nightmares of reducing are over (well as least when you make this hat)

Notes:
1. The Band of the hat can be made a wide or narrow as you like.
2. The pattern is written for the Large size; the Medium, Small and Child size is written inside the ()
3. Hat is worked in multiples of 8, if you want a big slouchy hat you will squeeze your SC together, if you want a more fitted hat you will want to space them out a bit more (but always in multiples of 8 stitches).
4. You will only turn your work when working the Band
5. If you chose to change colors you will do so while working the BPsl st (see Special Stitches), pick up the color change on the YO and pull through loop

Peaks and Valleys – Beanie

Well finally!  I figured out a pattern that I could photograph my little man in.  He was such a ham, and loved playing to the camera.
Peaks and Valleys Beanie

Ok how cool does the top of this hat look?!
Peaks and Valleys Beanie

This hat starts out using a continuous circle and then moved onto and Invisible Joining, and then your traditional slip stitch joining.  Which manages to produce a finished hat that has virtually no visible joining seam (and the crowd goes wild)!  Don’t get overwhelmed this is a great pattern to stretch your skills and after a few rows it repeats itself.

Peaks and Valleys Cowl

The idea for this stitch pattern honestly came to me as I stood at the store staring at this beautifully colored yarn from Red Heart with Wool, wondering what I could make with them to justify me buying it (as I already had a hand basket full of beautiful yarn).  Then it hit me!  I had been wanting to make myself a cowl and I had been wanting to try out the Cluster Drop stitch, so into the basket this beautiful yarn went.

Peaks and Valley Cluster Drop StitchBe sure to Favorite on Raverly!

I am so happy with this cowl!  I love this yarn also, it is so soft and warm!  And it felt great in my hands as I worked with it!  I think a few more items shall be made with the bit of yarn I have left!
