Free Crochet Pattern One skein Linen Stitch Beanie

It’s been some time since I last posted, whilst I’ve been away I’ve been learning more about crochet and have been improving my skills so that I can share more great patterns for you too make too. Whilst I’ve been learning I’ve become a bit obsessed with self stripping yarns and a bit of an obsession with Linen stitch too . So what better thing to make than something that combines the two into a swift to make perfect gift for the holiday season. The pattern is set out in Toddler, Teen/small adult and Adult large/ men. They all need just one skein of either Caron Cup Cake yarn or Knit and Purl pom hat yarn. Both come with a perfectly sized pom pom to add to your finished masterpiece.

Note this is a tight fitting beanie and not a slouchy beanie.
