Time to Create! ~ Basic Beanie Crochet Pattern

I love crocheting! I know I've said this many times before, but I think every time I say it I love it that little bit more!
It's fun and exciting knowing that whenever you pick up your crochet hook and yarn that you'll soon be creating something beautiful and amazing! I also love the fact that it gives me the ability to make things for my friends and family. Actually at the moment I'm busy making 4 different projects for my nearest and dearest haha
Another thing I love about crocheting is that I can let my creative juices ooze out into my fingers and create new patterns!... Now I do get very frustrated when I don't get my pattern right the first time lol but “No great thing is created suddenly.” So seeing as I'm a persistent person, I keep trying till I finally get it!
This is happens to be one of those 'new' patterns :)

  3. How fun, I can't wait to make several - you have such a wonderful, creative mind - thank God you share that with us!!
    I love to crochet too - sometimes I just want to shout how much joy I feel about it, and am sad, when things I make and give don't get the same reaction, but then I remember that most gifts are that way!!!
    I spent months making Tusinian purses for my teenage granddaughters and they looked at them and said "oh! nice" and walked away, so I packed them up and brought them home!! OH well, maybe I can sell them!!

    1. Aww thank you! You are too sweet! :)
      Well at least you get a lot of joy out of making it, so in the end it's worth it, don't you think?
      Oh, I'm sorry, I'm actually 16 if you didn't know, but I love making things and receiving things people made for me! I love knowing that someone loves me so much they would put the time and effort into making it for me :)
      I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day!

  8. Hi
    This isn't the beanie I was looking for. I was looking at how to put the border On the Flower. Sorry but I can not find names to identify your hats but it is green with pink border. I love it and would like to find the pattern.
    You are a real artist.
    Thank You
    Deb

      Here is the link to the pattern I believe you're talking about ~ http://www.hopefulhoney.com/2012/07/little-things-how-to-add-border-to.html
      I actually used the pattern of the beanie above, but I just changed the colour of the ribbing/border.
      Have a wonderful day,

  11. Olivia -

    When you say to do a double crochet decrease in the next 2 stitches, do you mean just do one double crochet decrease (because one double crochet decrease requires going through 2 stitches already) or did you mean doing 2 double crochet decreases in a row?

    1. I mean do ONE double crochet, which involves using 2 stitches :)
      Sorry about the confusion! This is one of my earlier patterns, and I didn't have a lot of experience writing patterns back then.
