In Traditional Valentine’s Day Colors.
If you recall I did a post about the heart beanie I made for Martin. In it I wrote that I was giving the front post double crochet stitch another try to make a beanie. The first attempt photos are shown below.
I got to looking at the beanie and decided I would start over. I didn’t like how it was looking with the red showing through the white and vice versa as I carried the unused color strand along and the heart was not lining up correctly. I also decided to make the larger 2T-3T size rather than the 6-12 months size. I think Martin is gonna be a big boy. 🙂
I couldn’t figure out any other way of changing to red other than cutting and joining to get the proper look. I kept the white attached but did not stitch it in as I crocheted the heart. I left it hang across the back and picked it back up when I returned to the main body of the beanie.
Here is the final result. I think I may have gotten the hang of the front post double crochet.
Here is the pattern I used:
