Beanie Instructions Part 1 of 3

The inspiration for this beanie
originated from one of those
free patterns you get from the craft store
in the yard section.
However, that pattern wasn't completely what I was looking for
so I made several changes.
Here is my version.
Crocheted Blue Beanie:

I used a F5- 3.75mm hook for the body of the hat and a E4 -3.50mm the trim (dark blue)
Using Baby Soft Lion Brand Yarns (Cuddly sport weight) for hat:

To begin: ch 2
Round 1: work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, slip st in first sc to join, = 6 sc.
Make sure to place maker here (1st Rnd)
Rnd 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around, slip st in first sc, =12 sc
Rnd 2: ch 1 add stitch marker, single crochet in next sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat 6 times = 18 sc.
Rnd 3: ch 1, add stitch marker, single crochet in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat 6 times = 24 sc.
Rnd 4: ch 1, add stitch marker, single crochet in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat 6 times =30 sc.
Rnd 5: ch 1, add stitch marker, single crochet in next 4 sc, 2 sc in next sc. Repeat 6 times = 36 sc.






Chain two
work 6 single crochet into 2nd chain from hook

place marker in chain 1 stitch for 1st round

single crochet 2 times in each single crochet stitch
(12 stitch total in at the end of round)
slip stitch into starting stitch, chain one, add marker...

Single crochet in next single crochet, 2 single crochet in the next single crochet.
Repeat this six times till you come to end of round three.
This is what the end of round 3 looks like.
slip stich into starting stitch, chain one, add marker,
start round four next...

End of round 5
I'll upload more pictures of this project on tomorrow post...
