BEANIES FOR DONATION
BEANIES FOR DONATION
Chennai, in Tamil Nadu, India, as you may have read has suffered from a really bad weather which has wrecked the city. There have been many homes destroyed, and families have lost all they own.
Several groups are doing some splendid work in trying to get the city and its people to limp back to normalcy.
Clothing is obviously needed abundantly, and I thought I’d crochet some caps for donation to children.
I worked overnight and made some .. using different ideas I found online, and here is my write up for my selection.
I wish I had had more time, but am happy with what I managed in the time-frame I had.
Materials used : Today I’ve used some of our lovely Indian Vardhaman millennium acrylic and some Wendy /Oswal 4-ply acrylic yarn, with a 4.5 mm crochet hook.
Abbreviations used :
e-sc : Extended Single Crochet sc : Single crochet
ch : chain ch-sp : chain space
sp : space rep : Repeat
I haven’t the time to design any new beanies or caps.. so thought I’d just check out some of the available free ones and make as many as I could.
This, is my review of the patterns used, in a way.
BEANIE 1 :
I loved this pattern , and will totally recommend it
BEANIE 2 :
One thing I think is a typo though, is that each round starts with a ch 3, which should be the 1st dc, so when we’re increasing, if we actually work in that 1st ch 3, we will end up with one extra st. So please remember to edit that first dc (or ch 3) out, and count your stitches at the end of every round.
BEANIE 3 :
A neat pattern with a space to run a satin ribbon through.. and who doesn’t like ribbons with little girls’ caps? Right?
BEANIE 4 :
BABY HAT PATTERN
I loved the little bow on this pattern, but I am not too happy with the way the top of the head turns out – I like a little tighter circle, and this little cap / hat was a little too wide-based. That said, this will probably work well for a larger person, but I’m making these caps for really little ones.
BEANIE 5 :
BEANIE WITH POM POMS
Babies and pom poms are made for one another.. cute and bouncy
BEANIE 6 :
This is a cute n simple pattern. Just one clarifications I’d like to add – in Row 2, designer has said “1 dc in the next sp, and 2 dc in the next sp”; which should read
“1 dc in the next dc, and 2 dc in the next dc” as the increase round repeat.
BEANIE 7 :
For my last set of beanie, I’ve decided to use this basic pattern, and
Enjoyed this ?? I sure did.. come back right here for freebie patterns.. and/or some wonderful crochet inspiration. J

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
