The Yarn That You’ll Want for This Winter Hat
A few months ago, I was thrilled when I received some of this gorgeous Touch of Alpaca yarn (color Jade) from Lion Brand Yarn. I knew as soon as I saw it I couldn’t wait to design a beanie with it!
This yarn is extremely soft, warm feeling, and I am pretty certain this would work up beautifully in any stitch. I am pretty confident that you will love it and want to grab some in every colorway!
Uses Basic Crochet Stitches
I decided to go with a crochet women’s hat design because when it’s 20 degrees outside, you want your noggin to stay warm and stylish. Yep, this hat is for me!
The Williams Crochet Beanie uses basic crochet stitches; the triple crochet and single crochet, which makes it a great and simple crochet hat for crochet beginners! The band of the hat uses half double crochets, which is also an easy crochet stitch to learn.
I know when I started crocheting a few years ago I was so anxious when I saw a stitch apart from a single crochet, but I can promise that this beanie is that can be done.
Start With The Band of The Hat
Once you have gathered all the supplies you need for your beanie, you can start with your band! I used a simple half double crochet band, so it works up quickly, which is always great
