Crocheted Beanie Hat Making

To keep everyone straight I had to monogram a little.

On Christmas my brother-in-law asked me if I could teach him how to crochet a beanie cap. I do like to make things and it stood to reason that I should be able to do that but I didn't know how. So I searched through the internet and came up with some videos that taught me how to do it. I have learned two different patterns so far that are fairly simple. the only draw back is that they take a lot of time to produce.

So if you are going to attempt this at home make sure you have gotten some of your chores done first or that you take breaks form your work from time to time to put in a wash of laundry or pick up some things to put away. It seems like you should be able to just crank them pout in no time flat because they are so small but it just doesn't happen that way.

Another way to enjoy this project might be on the way to the relatives or on a vacation trip, if you get to take those. Sometimes I have been known to watch a good movie and take some crochet work to my living room or bed for a while.

On Pinterest I have a beanie board so that you can see all of the videos and caps that I have considered. Which one is your favorite? Also, let me know in the comment section of this blog other ways you have been known to enjoy crocheting. Thanks!
