The Blackcurrant Jelly is a hat full of texture and fun. Looks fab on all ages and both sexes.
100g skein of DK/Light Worsted Yarn. Pictured example made with Twirl by Stylecraft yarns in Violet.
4.50mm Crochet Hook.
Large eyed tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Finished size goes from 21 inches/53 cms unstretched to 24 inches/61 cms stretched, approximately, and will fit the majority of teenager and adult heads.
Gauge is not critical because of the ‘stretch factor’ if you would like a particularly large diameter hat then go up a hook size or two, bearing in mind that more yarn will be required. The length is easily adjusted by repeating round 26.
The Blackcurrant Jelly Beanie is made from the top down starting with a magic loop and worked in the round, in one piece, to eliminate seaming. The optional ‘tails’ are made separately and attached by sewing.
