Edgy!

Sassy!

Cool!

Classy!

The Winterberry Sweater gives you the best of all four worlds!  I had a blast designing this sweater, which may or may not be the last in her collection (See Winterberry Slouch Crochet Pattern and Winterberry Infinity Crochet Pattern). Working with the honeycomb stitch and designing from the top-down, I can honestly say it was a task figuring out the numbers and increases. But once it hit me….it HIT me!

Alpha Beanie Crochet Pattern

Free PatternNatalia McHayleComment

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!
