Drawstring Beanie

I recently took a couple weeks off from crocheting. I have been suffering from Tennis Elbow something terrible and thought that crocheting could have been causing the pain. I'm not going to rule it out just yet, but It didn't help relieve it by not crocheting, so here I am, right back at it.

I made a couple things for a friends baby and then I made a couple of these cute little drawstring beanies to put in my shop. I fiddled and faddled until I come up with what I believe is now my favorite creation.





The neat thing about this cute little beanie is that it doubles as a neck warmer by just undoing the drawstring. I actually think I will make one for myself. But first I am going to share my pattern for all of you that like to crochet.


You are welcome to use my pattern and sell what you make with it. I just ask if you will link it back to me when you do so I can get credit for the pattern. But please do not sell my pattern. :(

Draw String Beanie:
H Hook (my favorite)
ch= chain
sc= single crochet
dc= double crochet

Ribbed Band
chain 10
Row 1: sc first chain from hook, across. (9) ch 1 turn.
Row 2: sc back loop only across. (9) ch 1 turn.
Repeat: sc back loop only across, ch 1 turn until you have enough to fit around the head.
Form a ring: sc two ends together. -Now your band is made.
no need to ch1. just begin crocheting the beanie in rounds ( you may need a stich marker). I used the tail of the beginning chain to mark my beginning of each row.

Beanie
Row 1: sc around once
Remaining Rows: sc, dc next stitch, skip next stitch, sc, dc next (repeat round and round to desired depth hat needs to be. finish off.

Draw String
ch 100, cut yarn and tie knot in each end.
weave in and out of last row of stitches.
There you have it!

You can alter the size by using less rows and stitches or different size crochet hooks.
You know what else is fun about this pattern? You can use any of your favorite stitches to create any texture you like best.

If you can't crochet and want one of these cute bundle of stitches, just visit my shop to see if any are available. If not, I'll be glad to make one up for ya.
