SUZIE’S LOTSA BEADS BEANIE - Adult's (C)




Many thanks to Jo from NY for testing my patterns.


Materials:
About 2.5 oz of worsted weight yarn
60 {66} 9x6mm pony beads
I/5.50 mm crochet hook

Gauge: 6 sc = 2 inches
Size: Women’s 22 inch, {Women’s large 24 inch}

Notes:
1. Read instructions, for the size you will be crocheting, all the way through before beginning.
2. Beginning ch 2 does not count as a stitch through out pattern.
3. The first stitch goes in the same place as join.
4. When joining rounds with a slipstitch pull the stitch tight. You want it to nearly disappear.
5. There are instructions for two ways of adding beads to your work. See the adult’s 22 inch and the child’s 18 inch size to decide which method you like best.

Instructions:
Before beginning thread 60 {66} beads on yarn

Round 1: Ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in first ch to form ring. Ch 2, (do not count as first dc from now on), 12 dc in ring. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (12 sts)

Round 2:
Ch 2, 2 dc in each st. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (24 sts)

Suzie I love your beaded beanie hats! The possibilities are endless with so many different color bead and yarn combinations! You can even make them in your favorite school colors, or in seasonal colors or patriotic.
All of your work is beautiful, simple and a joy to make!
Keep up the great work. Hugs, Irma
 
What a great hat pattern! I was able to easily make a cap in an afternoon. I used a red skein of Caron Simply Soft with off-white colored beads. I think I will make a couple more in different colors to match more of my clothing. Thanks for the patterns!
 
Hi Suzie. Thanks for this pattern. The result is awesome. I made also a scarf with two rows of beads at each end; it makes a nice ensemble.
 
is it alright to do this pattern without the beads?
 
Certainly.
 
I belong to a knitting Club here in North Wales Great Britain. We knit for charity and knit for many causes such as premature babies, orphanages across the world, soldiers beanies, Christmas shoe boxes even dog and cat blankets etc. We often sell items at fairs so we can buy more yarn for our causes. Some have only just learned to crochet and one lady asked me if I could teach her to crochet a beanie. I love your beaded beanie pattern and think this will be suitable for her. Would it be alright for me to make this for our charities and fairs? I have knitted and crocheted since a child and now in my late 70's I,m always trying new projects. One of my favourites are glitter crochet flower brooches. Thank you again. maureen
 
It is okay to make and sell for charities. Just don't offer for sale online.
