Hey Guy's!

So today I thought I would share with you a popular hat pattern in the crochet community; Puff Stitch Beanies. 

I wanted to design a quick and easy puff stitch beanie that didn't have all the confusing seaming that needed to be done when you work the hat from the bottom up, so I did the exact opposite and made one from the top down. Yay!

I decided to make a Youtube video for this pattern as well, we all do puff stitches differently and it's great to see a visual!

Let's get into the pattern!

 

Notes:

- One size only, fits the average women’s 21” head circumference

- Worked from the top down, ribbing is done last.
