Crochet Project: Shell Beanie

Hi Cute-rs! Presenting my third crochet hat for my mom, technically this is my hmm....well I lost count. Anyway...This is a Shell Hat with a touch of butterfly accent.


The pattern is free from this link: http://growcreative.blogspot.com/2012/02/shell-stitch-crochet-hat-free-pattern.html

I omit the flowers and replaced it with a butterfly design by Clare. Here's the two part video tutorial of the butterfly crochet:

Isn't the butterfly cute?!

I used a shade of green for the base color.


This hat is called a Shell Hat because of the shell stitch. Shell stitch is an adaptable stitch with many variations. To make a shell stitch, work 4/5 double crochet stitches in the same stitch.


And here's the Shell Beanie, it's nice right


Then, here's the butterfly design, I attached it on the right side of the beanie.


...a closer look at the butterfly.


There you have it Cute-rs I hope you all like it. This crochet project is a nice gift, I think my mom will give this away. Anyway, I hope who ever get this will like it.

Until my next project...happy crochet!
