Welcome to Sweet Nothings Crochet Blog where you can find Free Crochet Patterns plus my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.

ROTARY CHARITY CAPS
ROTARY CHARITY CAPS
I am making these for a Charity Drive with
Rotary India (Chembur) in conjunction with the Burns Clinic at Airoli, Navi
Most of the projects that are in this blog are
from free patterns and the notes are only for either a difference in pattern or
for sizes obtained using our locally available Indian yarns.
Materials used:Today I’ve used our lovely Indian Vardhaman Millenium and / or Oswal
Cashmilon 4-ply yarns with a 4 mm crochet hook
Abbreviations used :
fsc : Foundation single crochet dc
: Double crochet
ch : chain
: chain space
sp : space
hdc : Half Double crochet sc-blo
: Single Crochet Back Loop Only
I’ve got a size of 7” length and
circumference of 16.5”, which with the stretch of my yarn and work, will fit 6
yrs to young teen.
I suggest that if using the same yarn
thickness (esp if you are unable to get the gauge as given by the designer,
every few rounds) then change to double crochet (for length) and probably
increase the number of round increases for getting the increase in
the eyes : If you don’t get the little buttons,
then here’s what I’ve done.
Work a magic circle with 6 sc (or

C : Notes for “Love this Beanie and
Cowl” from Heidi Yates
I’ll only add one thing for our Indian users. We do not get this bulky yarn locally, and
I’ve made this using a 4 mm hook and Vardhaman Millennium. This pattern is worked side to side in
pattern, and you’re working from the brim of your hat / beanie to the crown
sideways. So I started with an even
number of stitches that was sufficient for the length / height of the beanie less
what I kept for the brim. Which means
that you calculate what you want for the full length/ height and then ‘deduct’
the number of inches for the brim and then work the pattern.. I then came back
to add in the brim.
The beauty of this pattern is that if it turns
out too short, just add in a bit more for the brim and voila! You’re back in
As this pattern may become a paid pattern
shortly, I cannot share specifics of what I’ve done.. Sorry.
Circumference = 18” x Height from crown to brim = 7.5”
