Thick and Thin Baby Beanie Crochet Pattern

Last October I was drooling all over this lovely thick and thin yarn. It's expensive but I just had to try it! The picture above is what I bought - You can read more about it in this blog post

Thick & Thin Yarn

I tried to make a simple Nb hat with it before and was having trouble figuring out what to do. I couldn't really find any crochet patterns because this yarn is used a lot more with knitting. {I don't knit - I've tried and I don't like it} so this gorgeous yarn has been sitting in a bag in my stash untouched and that wasn't acceptable to me after what I spent on it. So tonight I grabbed a big hook and made a pattern myself and to my surprise it came out perfect the first time. I made up a few more and had the pattern tested and it's all ready to go!

Here are the hats! Aren't they gorgeous! 

You'll just need an N hook & some thick and thin yarn !
Fits 0-3 mo , 13-15 inches

This pattern can be purchased in my Ravelry shop - or directly on my blog
Soon in Etsy and Artfire.

I'm planning other new patterns with this yarn too so keep your eye out for it in the coming months. 

Don't Crochet? These hats will also be available to purchase soon aswell

These are beautiful yarns. I've not heard of thick and thin yarns. The hats are equally gorgeous. I especially like the vibrant colored one. Reminds me of a bright rainbow of Skittles. :-)

Lovely yarn. I don't think that I would have picked it up myself but it's interesting to see how you ended up using it.

Any idea why this type of yarn might work better for knitting?

@crochet Blogger - I don't really know! That's just what I've heard and read. I'll admit it was splurge {it's not something to buy lightly because it's pricey for a small amount}

I just purchased some of this yarn and have been trying to figure out what to do with it! I am going to go grab your pattern! Glad I found your blog!!!

Do you have anymore patterns for thick and thin yarn? I can't bring myself to make another hat.

Elisabeth Spivey said...

Christin - Not at this time... sorry! :( I bet if you search etsy you will find a few though.

I order my yarn from different Etsy sellers. I have one listed in the pattern but can email you some others I've seen but i've only bought from one shop.
