So last week I released a pattern for the Hopewell Scarf. I can’t thank you enough for all the positive feedback I have received about that pattern. I’m really glad you like it because I already had it in my head that I was going to make a matching Hopewell Beanie. I just love the feel and texture of the velvet yarn. If you haven’t tried it yet, I encourage you to!
This beanie pattern is extremely beginner friendly. It is crocheted using the same stitch sequence as the matching scarf. The band is created first, then the body is worked along the edge of the band. It is then sewed together to form a tube which is cinched at the top.
This Hopewell Scarf and Beanie set would make such a great gift for Christmas. It’s never too early to start! Both patterns are easy to follow and make for a quick project. I hope you enjoy the pattern!
