Thick and Toasty Hugs and Kisses 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 Hugs and Kisses Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a slender Size 6 (super bulky) yarn.

This beanie is made with Loops and Threads Charisma yarn in Bright Pop.

This beanie is made with rows of criss cross stitches (x) and puff stitches (o) the body of the beanie.

Stitches used:

ch- chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

crisscross – sk 1 stitch and dc in the next, then dc into the skipped st

Puffed stitch –

ch 2, yarn over and insert hook to the same stitch, pull yarn through, yarn over and insert hook into the same stitch, pull yarn through, yarn over and interest hook into the same stitch, pull yarn through, and then pull yarn through all 7 loops

sk st – skip stitch
