EXTREMELY SIMPLE REVERSIBLE UNISEX BEANIE
I’ve been asked to design an extremely simple for a young girl – the only requirement being it is in grey, and probably have an anchor at the end. This is what I’ve decided to make for this special young lady.
Materials used : Today I’ve used the lovely Indian Oswal Cashmilon 4-ply yarn with a 4 mm crochet hook
Optional : Stitch marker
Abbreviations used :
fsc : Foundation single crochet dc : Double crochet
ch : chain ch-sp : chain space
sp : space rep : Repeat
hdc : Half Double crochet sc-blo : Single Crochet Back Loop Only
Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start. However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.
Here is a sizing chart for general head sizing : https://in.pinterest.com/pin/470063279837764548/

Instructions : (Using U.S terminology)
For this pattern, we are going to work in all sc and in continuous rounds
From the following round, we will use the fpdc or Front Post Double Crochet stitch.
For a quick refresher or “How to”, check the links below
fpdc : Front Post Double Crochet : Post stitches are stitches worked around the post of a stitch of the row below.
How to work the fpdc : yo, hk into sp between posts of st from row below – going from back of stitch, around st and into the front of the st ; yo, pull yarn through the sps (3 lps on hk), (yo & pull through 2 lps) twice. One fpdc complete
