For some reason I just could not grasp holding two needles together. I wanted to learn because I love the look of knitted pieces. Maybe some day I will learn, but for now I am happy with the look of Tunisian crochet. If you have never tried Tunisian crochet, you have to! It looks harder then it is, I promise! The Tunisian Knit stitch looks exactly like a traditional knit stitch.
The body of this beanie is crocheted using only this type of stitch. The band is crocheted using both the Tunisian Knit stitch and Purl stitch. These are the only two types of stitches you will need to know to crochet this beanie.
This beanie is extremely beginner friendly. I would recommend watching the video tutorials below before you start. They are very helpful in showing the different stitches and how to bind off.

Work a TKS in each stitch left. I loved her hat when I saw it. I did this on the Bulky Brother but it can be done on any machine.
So I guessed and I was right. Well that left a lot of strings hanging.
And, as the work was getting smaller near the top I thought I would end up with dropped stitches. Now I did get the yarn on sale but I will still make another one to justify the cost. The colors are Buff Chamois and Aspen print. There is buff color in the variegated yarn. In the picture it does not look like it matches.
It took almost 3 ounces of yarn for this hat so I will be able to make quite a few. This is a great hat to make with left over yarns.
I recommend that everyone try the entrelac at least once.
