Thick and Toasty Spike Stitch Cuff Beanie (for when the yarn varies…)

Sometimes, a Size 6 (super bulky) yarn can feel like a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or vice versa. Here is a variation of our pattern for a Thick and Toasty Spike Stitch Cuff Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a slender Size 6 (super bulky) yarn.

This beanie is made with Bernat Softee Chunky yarn in slate twist and black.

This beanie is made with a cuff of spike stitches in the edge of the hat.

Stitches used:

ch- chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

ldc  – long double crochet
