Who loves Valentine’s Day? This girl right here does!
It’s one of my favorite holidays. All the hearts, candy, flowers (not roses though), chocolate, and steak with baked potatoes are perfect for my soul and make my heart happy. I love Valentine’s Day so much that I decided to get married on that day. This year marks 11 years I’ve been married with my wonderful husband.
I was really excited when Deni had this beanie to test. I knew I couldn’t just use any yarn with it so I went and bought some Red Heart Ombre yarn in their Jazzy color. I had my eye on it for a while but wasn’t quite sure what I could make with it so I hadn’t gotten any yet. This was my first time using that kind of yarn (ombre) and I really liked it. It was just the right amount of color before it changed to the next hue.
This pattern is perfect for an advanced beginner. The lady explains the pattern really well and is available if you have any questions. Now, the reason I say it’s for advanced beginners is because 1) It’s worked in the round 2) It has puff stitches in it 3) It is turned on some rows instead of continuing onto the next round the same way. But once you get the hang of it is works up really fast. It only took me a couple of hours to actually make it.
This pattern has instructions for three different styles: beanie, slouch and messy bun. It ranges from toddler to large adult. And it even has a bonus of how to make you own pom pom out of faux fur. If you’d like to make the hat you can purchase the pattern from DeniMade’s shop on Ravelry from this link –> Valentina Beanie. And for a limited time she’s got a Valentine’s Day promo. You can get the Valentina Beanie at 30% off! (No coupon code needed!) Sale ends on February 14th at 11:59 PM est though so grab it fast. It is worth it. And if you don’t know how to crochet and would like one of these for you or a loved one, I can most definitely make one for you.
