In the winter time I´m always in the mood for knitting and crocheting,
so I´m gonna share an easy to crochet, puffy, slouchy beanie with you!
1-2 skeins of your favourite wool (I really like the Universal from Wolle Rödel, 125m /50gr here)
Needles 4-4,5mm optional for the cuff
Chain 72 and close (check before closing, if it fits around your head. Chain more or less when needed.
Chain 1, 1 sc in each stitch to end of round, slip stitch to chain 1 to join. Repeat till desired height of the cuff
I knitted the cuff, 2 knit 2 purl.
Now we start the puff stich:
Yarn over, Insert hook into indicated stitch
repeat till 5 loops are on your hook yarn over again and draw the yarn through all the loops on the hook. This completes the puff. Chain 1 to secure the stitch.
That´s the puff!
Puff-Tutorial but I made the experience, that 7 loops are too puffy :-)
Puff stich 12 rows or 19cm measured without the cuff.
Next row decrease, leave every third stich,
from the next row stich just every second until 3 puffs or height 25cm, sew up, done!
Have fun with it!
