Tunisian Beanie!

So I wanted a flat crocheted beanie, done in Tunisian. The only one I seemed able to find was done sideways in short rows, and I wanted one done bottom up (nothing against that pattern, it’s really a great pattern!) since I wanted it to look knit, with nice cushy Tunisian warmth!

So of course I had to write a pattern. I can’t make something and not write a pattern anymore. Which is just dandy in my book, since it gives me plenty to share with everyone! 😀

WW yarn-I used some old Red Heart that is freaky hot red, these pics don’t do it justice!

Ok, so mine came out a lil long, but I like it that way so it covers my ears. If you want it shorter, do less rows/work until piece measure 5 in.

I tried it on the bf too, and it fit him but was a lil tight. Which he doesn’t like, but if you want it bigger go up hook size/loosen your tension. 🙂

Note- Always skip the actual first stitch on the row, as this is akin to slipping the first stitch in knitting, and helps keep a neater edge in your work.

Return pass always yo & pull thru first loop, then yo & pull thru 2 loops across.

Ch 60, pick up back humps across ch. Work a return pass.

Row 35: Tks2tog across, tks in last st. Work return pass.  7 sts

Work a bind off row in tks, break yarn leaving long tail for sewing.

Thread tail onto needle, and go thru the front loops of each top stitch around, pulling tight to close up top.

Sew down side of hat. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Can’t wait for my hair to grow out 😛 thank goodness for hats!!

    • You certainly may sell them, I’d love a kick back to the pattern is all! The easy way to downsize is go down a size in hook by one or two and using a lighter yarn but other than that you would need to decrease starting stitches and change your decreases accordingly
