My first crocheted beanie!

I have recently joined a crochet group here, and we get together every second week and crochet and chat, and it is such good fun! I have been working on my ripple blanket at our get-togethers, but was recently inspired by one of the ladies to try and crochet myself a beanie.

I have never crocheted a beanie before, and had no idea where to start, so I used the fabulous half double crochet beanie tutorial by bobwilson123 on YouTube...check it out here.

I started it on Tuesday at lunchtime, and had it finished this morning - less than two days! I'm a beanie making machine!! Check it out below...
So, what do you think? Do you like the desert colours?

I have used Rowan Handknit Cotton (100% cotton) in the following colours: Burnt (343), Florence (350), Ochre (349) and Choc (315). Purchased online from my favourite yarn shop....Deramores.

I might add that I was busy modelling this hat on a 39 degree celcius day.....the crazy things we do ;-). Thanks for dropping by and have a lovely day!
