This is the first pattern I have actually taken time to write out. When I first started crocheting I thought, “wow, I will never get to the point where I can make something without a pattern”. I still love working from patterns, but I do from time to time make up things without one. This is a simple little beanie I made one day out of boredom. So I thought I would share it with you. Works up super fast! If you have any questions, please send me a message or comment!
When you get to the last stitch in the row, before completing it you will be changing your color. I recommend watching the video on the following link because I know for me, seeing something makes it that much easier to understand. http://www.allfreecrochet.com/Tutorials/How-to-Color-Change-without-Knots
