The Alpha Beanie was inspired by a few knit creations I found on Instagram & Pinterest. I'm a HUGE fan of texture (if you didn't already know) so I'm always playing around with stitch combos.
The Alpha Beanie is quick, simple and beginner friendly. For this pattern, I used less than one ball of Lion Brand's Jean's yarn and a 6 mm hook. This pattern uses two simple stitches to get a textured design; single crochet ribbing and extended double crochet. I learned extended double crochet just a few months ago. I'm pretty sure it's not new, but I hardly ever see it being used. This was my first time incorporating it in a design, so if you haven't yet...grab your materials & here's your chance!
