Basket weave beanie & messy bun beanie
I’ve created this pattern as my warm and comfy donation hat because it’s simple to work and gives great texture without boredom. I could do basket weave over and over on everything. I am a left handed crocheter I’ve decided I just better write that into my patterns now. I have for years crocheted many patterns from right handed people however and right handed people have made my patterns.
So without further mumbojumbo
Here We Go!
And one more thing before you start! I would love it if you shared this post with your friends!
And dont forget to pin it so you dont lose track of it!
