Yes, it’s live and it’s really quite fantastic. Not only is the Crochet Thermal Stitch Beanie a great design, but you can also make one with a ponytail hole in the back.
It’s Live, It’s Completely Reversible and It’s Fun!
LauraRose noted in comments that the instructions for the Crochet Thermal Stitch Beanie and the associated YouTube video were no longer available on my blog.
She’s correct. The minute that I found out that the guy who posted photos and notes about this hat on Facebook was going to publish a pattern, I pulled my “spoilers.” Tony generously shared his tips on making these hats, so I thought that the least I could do was to not steal his thunder when he published the pattern.
And I have DEFINITELY crocheted a few of these beauties.
And I even had the chance to test-crochet Tony’s pattern and it’s really well done.
Supporting an Emerging Designer
Tony is relatively new to both crochet and to designing. But immediately, he sees stitches, textures and patterns in a way that he can make garments that are innovative and beautiful.
This is the EXACT kind of designer I want to encourage and support.
Even if you don’t crochet, I’m more than happy to help anyone learn to make one of these hats.
Current Tunisian Crochet
It may not look like I’ve made any progress since Monday…
…but it feels like I’ve been crocheting non-stop. I guess this fabric doesn’t grow as fast as other projects. Especially when it’s 295 stitches each row.
