Everyday-style crochet headwear

Save 25% when you purchase a bundle of Bandana Heads' crochet patterns:

An open check crochet stitch is featured in all three Everyday styles: beanie, bandana and headband. The crochet beanie is unisex - guys with buzzed or bald heads will appreciate the softness and comfort of lightweight cotton.

You will need 1 x 50 g skein of 4 ply fingering weight yarn for each project and a 3.00 mm hook. If you have ribbon yarn in your stash you may like to embellish the edge of the beanie for a pretty accent.

My favorite cotton yarn for a summer weight beanie or bandana is a 4 ply cotton from Brazil by Circulo Linhas called Anne. It is very soft and comes in a luscious variety of colors. Other yarn suggestions include: Fingering/4 ply weight yarn such Mandarin Petit by Norwegian Spirit, Sesia Baby by Sesia, Rowan 4 ply cotton, Panda Regal 4 ply and Heirloom 4 ply cotton from Australia.

You can buy the Everyday-style pattern bundle at BandanaHeads on Etsy
