How to crochet an easy Textured Beanie

Save 50.0% on select products from MOUSYA with promo code 50954MYF, through 1/31 while supplies last. So this beanie is worked in rounds and it is very easy to achieve, there is no increase, decrease, there is very minimal sewing at the end and the beanie looks nice and most important very warm. I love the stitch that I have used because it creates like a double layer at the back side of the beanie, it's like you are making two stitches in one, however it is that one stitch creating the double effect and for winter there is nothing better than having a nice beanie like that. The color change is not a must, because I didn't have 2 of the same color, I matched another color with it, I simply attached the two yarn threads together and continued working. Also for the number of stitches, the written pattern is based on medium/ large size, you can make around 50 chains for medium size, bear in mind that this is a chunky yarn.    PDF PATTERN: ETSY RAVELRY Materials: Kar

How to crochet the C2C baby blanket

I was never attracted or motivated to make crochet things for babies or even children, from the time I have learned to crochet, I loved to make blankets mostly , scarves occasionally and hats and beanies from time to time.
I must say that there are no babies in the family for me to crochet baby blankets or other stuff 😊, however recently, things have changed, I started liking to make small things with soft and thin yarn, I'm still trying to adapt but I'm getting there 😥.
So here I am sharing with you this baby blanket, I love the texture of it because it is blended cotton and acrylic and they are is quite thin , I have also made the beanie but I'll share that in another post.
C2C, if you are familiar with it is easy to achieve, once you start building your little squares, you see how fast it works up and pretty.



So it is worked in a triangle shape, you work the first half then you start closing to finish the second half, I have made few projects with the C2C pattern and I'll link them all here so you can choose which one you like and have a look.



For this blanket I have used 2 and a half skeins of yarn, one full was for the first half triangle and another one for the second half and the last half skein was for the border.

For the border , I just made a simple single crochet around for 5 rows.

Written Pattern:

1 skein used for the 1st half

 Row 1: Ch 6, dc in the 4th ch from the hook. Dc in the next 2 ch.turn


Row 2: Ch 6, dc in the 4th ch from the hook. Dc in the next 2 ch. Join into the initial ch3 of the first square. Ch3 in the same space and 3 dc. Turn.

Row 3: Ch 6, dc in the 4th ch from the hook. Dc in the next 2 ch. Join into the initial ch3 of the first square. Ch3 in the same space and 3 dc. Sl into the next square  ( ch3 space), 3dc in the same space. Turn.

Repeat row 3 throughout your work till row 30......

Using the 2nd yarn skein, we will start closing the square:

Row  30: sl st in the last square, do not ch 3, turn your work opposite side, now you have to start closing down the triangle.

Row 31: sl st the next 3 st, ch3, 3 dc in the space (of the square), sl st into the next square, ch3, 3 dc in the same square, repeat till end of the row, at the end of the row, you should finish with a sl st, turn.

Repeat row 31 till the blanket becomes a full square, once the square closed, sl st in the next 3 st to keep the work neat.

Border
From the last point, ch 1, sc in the same st, ch1, 2 sc in the same st, sc in every st till the next corner, 2sc, ch 1,2sc all in the next corner, continue sc till the next corner.

Row 2 to 5: ch1, sc in the space, sc in every st, in the next corners,sc, ch1, sc, repeat . Fasten off
