Dreamy Mango and Cream Beanie

I started this apricot coloured beanie ages ago, and now it's finally finished!

After I made the blue beanie for David about 3 years ago without a pattern, I thought to make myself a warmer one as well. The white one I made for myself in 2004 has too many holes to be warm enough. So I chose three lovely bits of wool that seemed to match, the cream wool has flecks of orange in it, one ball still had the label which said the colour was 'mango'. But I hit a snag and the beanie was turning out too big so I left it aside for a couple of years!

When I recently started working on my beanie making skill in earnest, I went back to this to try and finish it off. I undid a few rounds and started making the straight sides, adding in a rough apricot coloured stripe in the middle to use up the last of that yarn.

This is a very simple beanie made from beautifully soft wool that feels nice on the face, and it's nice and warm too! I think I am ready to get some nicer wool to make more beanies for family and friends!

  1. That is great that you crocheted a garment, I've only made some squares into a rug, never been game to try to make something in crochet to fit, I'm much better at knitting!
