Pretty Patterned Beanie with Flower Brooch

This pretty wine-coloured beanie was not planned and has ended up being a small adult or teenager size. I wonder who will wear it?

I had planned for this to be for one of my young nephews, using the craft wool I bought from the city Lincraft store on Monday especially because this is a ‘dark colour’. A good thing too, that I didn’t need to use the whole 100g ball, the end of the yarn is faulty, but at least it was cheap at just $2. But this wool had such a pretty shine to it I just had to do some special stitch which ended up looking a bit pretty. This is a common shell stitch and is the same as I used on my teddy bear dress. I started the beanie with 7 increasing rounds which is the size for an adult, but the pattern makes its little tight for me to wear. For this I used a 3.5mm hook.

I don’t think I’d ever wear a hat with a big flower on it, but this is just begging for one! I had a go at the rose pattern from Crochet Spot. A big thankyou to Rachel for sharing this free pattern on her site, I’m really happy with how this turned out! Because I wouldn’t normally be keen on wearing a big flower on a hat myself, I’ve made the rose detachable by securing it to a safety pin. This way, you can wear the beanie with or without the flower, you could even pin the flower to other things like a bag.

This was really easy to make, and cheap using this wool. Maybe next time I will get some fancier yarn?
