Fall Bow Beanie

This weekend I indulged in a wee bit of yarn shopping. Fall has arrived and with that comes beanies, scarves, gloves etc. I'm so in the fall fashion state of mind now and I'm constantly coming up with new and exciting pieces to create. When I think of fall I always picture burgundy shades. I absolutely love this color and it is a shade that goes with any complexion. So I bought tons of the stuff. I really can't wait to play around with it.
I love bows and I love beanies so why not put the two together and so I created this stunningly beautiful fall bow beanie. It is designed to fit snugly on the head and it would look pretty with the bow towards the middle of the head or towards the side like the photo below.


To make this beauty all you need is worsted yarn and a 5mm crochet hook.

Beanie:

10 double crochet into a magic ring. Join with a slip stitch to close. Chain 2, turn.

Make 2 double crochet into each stitch around, then join with a slip stitch to close. Chain 2, turn.

*Make 1 double crochet into the next stitch then 2 double crochet into the following*. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 2, turn.

*Make 1 double crochet into the next 2 stitch, then make 2 double crochets into the next stitch*. Repeat from * to * to the end. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 2, turn.

*Make 1 double crochet into the next 3 stitches, then make 2 double crochets into the following stitch*. Repeat from * to * to the end. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 2, turn.

*Make 1 double crochet into the next 4 stitches, then make 2 double crochets into the following stitch*. Repeat from * to * to the end. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 2, turn.

Make 1 double crochet into each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch. Chain 2, turn. Repeat this for a further 9 rows.

Fasten off and weave in all the ends.



Bow:
Rounds are continuous. Do not join with a slip stitch at the end of each round.

Chain 40. Join to the first chain to make a circle.

Make a double crochet into each chain around. Do this for a further 8-9 rounds.

Cut yarn leaving a very long tail. Pinch this rectangular piece in the middle to create a bow shape. With the long tail end that you just cut wrap it around the middle of the bow several times to secure it. Insert your tail end into a yarn needle and insert it a few times through the back of the bow to secure. All you have to do now is stitch the bow onto the beanie. I just sewed through the middle of the bow and through the beanie.

Enjoy
