Ridged Beanie Pattern


Ridged Beanie Pattern


I have had many requests for this pattern, so I thought I better write it up and add it to my collection here on the blog. This is the first of my patterns in the "Pattern a Month" challenge I have set myself for 2012.

At first the pattern may seem a little complicated, however with a little patience and persistence you will soon have the hang of all the stitches and will be able to whip one of these beanies up in an evening :-)

At times the pattern may also seem a little bit "wordy", this is done for people who are new to following patterns, so that everything is explained thoroughly :-)

They're great for last minute gifts and perfect for making for charity :-)


Skill Level: Adventurous Beginner to Intermediate. Knowledge of front post treble (front post double crochet), front post double treble (front post treble), front post half treble ( front post half double crochet) & back post half treble ( back post half double crochet) is required to complete this pattern (there are a lot of really great tutorials on the internet that will help you learn how to do these stitches if you're not already familiar with them :-)

Sizes: Child 48cm (Woman 56-58cm, Man 60-63cm)

Materials: 4.5mm hook

Dk or 8 ply yarn, 120m (140m, 160m) of yarn required. This amount is approximate.

Sewing Needle

Scissors

Gauge: 16tr (dc) per 10cm (4"). If you have more stitches you should use a larger hook, if you have less stitches you should use a smaller hook :-)
