Thick and Toasty Waffle Stitch Beanie

This beanie is made by intertwining Pluck Knitters Primo yarn in Reno Night Lights with Loops and Threads Baby Cuddles yarn in Neutral Gray

Normally, we make two different kinds of Thick and Toasty beanies for each pattern – one with size 5 (bulky yarn) and one with size 6 (super bulky yarn). But after working this pattern several times, we found that this pattern works better with the more slender yarn (so a size 5 or thin size 6) for our thick and toasty version!

This beanie is made by alternating Front Post Double Crochet stitches, Double Crochet stitches, and Back Post Double Crochet stitches to make the body look like a waffle.

Stitches used:

ch- chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

FPdc – front post double crochet

BPdc – back post double crochet

sl st – slip stitch

st – stitch
