My First Beanie

This rainbow beanie did get finished a while ago, but it’s only now cold enough to reasonably wear it, so! Here it is!

A rainbow-striped crocheted beanie with a rainbow-striped pompom sits flat-ish on a white brick background. The stripes are in rainbow order up from the ribbing.

The pattern came from a Simply Crochet magazine, and had this front post/back post half treble ribbing, which was difficult.

But I love how it turned out!

The author wears the rainbow-striped crocheted beanie, back to the camera with her head slightly turned to the right. Behind the author is a white lattice, and she has shoulder-length dark hair and a khaki jacket on.
The author wears the rainbow beanie against a white lattice. Her head is turned almost fully to the left, but her face is blocked by her hand, which reaches up to adjust the ribbing.

The pompom turned out a little bigger than I planned, but the effect of the stripes in it looks very cool.

The author wears the rainbow beanie, back to the camera and against a white lattice. Her head is tilted back so the rainbow-striped pompom is visible from the top of the beanie.

Would I make another? Probably! Are beanies a practical thing to make? Not really. Would I make another anyway? I mean, I do have some nice purple-ish yarn that a friend of a friend didn’t want anymore…. hopefully this isn’t my last beanie!

Anyways, see ya!
