Lil Loopy Beanie
(More pictures at the bottom of the post.)
Lil Loopy Beanie is now available for purchase! It was tested by 11 folks on the Free Pattern Testers forum on Ravelry. As you can see, this pattern is super fun to the eye. It is also extra cozy because the loops create an extra layer of warmth. The beanie pictured above was done in a self striping yarn; however, testers had nice results with variegated yarns as well as rows of solid colors.
The pattern also includes optional earflaps to keep out the winter chill. Last on the page is the tutorial on how to make the braids.
Difficulty: The pattern uses only beginner level stitches. The main section uses single crochet and the chain stitch and the brim uses single crochet and double crochet. There is a picture and video tutorial to help with the loop placement. This pattern would be good for an advanced beginner.
Sizing: Many testers reported it was hard to keep gauge and thus I recommend going down a size if you are on the edge when choosing a size.
