"Elianna" Puff Beanie

Sizes 0-3 months; 3-6 months; 6-12 months and 1-3 years



A very easy and quick little beanie with a simple modified puff stitch that is easy and repetitive.  You will have these done in no time at all.


Materials: 1 Skein worsted weight yarn (aran/10ply) in Main colour; Oddments in contrasting colour; 4mm hook; 4.5mm hook; yarn needle for sewing in ends.

Abbreviations: sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; dc = double crochet; 2LP – 2 Loop Puff stitch (see “Special Stitch” below); beg = beginning; rep = repeat; sp = space; st = stitch; sl st = slip stitch; MC = main colour; yo = yarn over; sk = skip.

Special Stitch: 2LP – Quite simply, a modified puff stitch.  Work it this way:  Yo, insert hook into next space, draw through a loop.  Yo, insert hook into same space, draw through a loop, (5 loops on hook), yo, draw yarn through 4 loops (2 loops on hook); yo, draw through last 2 loops.  Sounds complicated, but once you’ve done it a few times, you will do it again very easily.
