You know when you get an idea stuck in your head and until you make it you can't stop thinking about it? That was this pattern. I have been dreaming, and thinking about it for about 3 days now and haven't really been able to do much with it because my black yarn was tied up in making my table runner for my new house. So when I finally finished that and was able to get this started I couldn't believe how great it would really turn out. In my mind I had an idea of what I wanted it to look like, having the triple crochet's overlap the previous row, but when it came together, as always, the yarn completely surprised me. It is way better than I would have imagined. It has a great texture to it that you can't really see in the pictures. Believe it or not, I thought this was going to turn out more like a slouchy than an actual beanie but as you can see from the finished product, it is a perfect beanie cap.
Thanks for looking!
