Thick and Toasty Triple Criss Cross Striped 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 Triple Criss Cross Striped Beanie made with either a Size 5 (bulky) yarn or a slender Size 6 (super bulky) yarn.

This beanie is made with SIRDAR Denim Ultra Yarn

This beanie is made with rows of triple Criss Cross stitches alternating with rows of double crochet stitches in the body of the hat..

Stitches used:
