I made another beanie for Craft Hope last night. This one is sized for a baby girl. I thought it might be nice to add a scalloped trim for an extra touch. If you are making the Spiral Beanie, and you would like to add a trim like this one, all I did was alter the last row of the brim as follows:
(sl st, skip st, 3 dc in next st, skip st) around
This gives you a cute little scalloped edge. I also wanted to make a flower for my brim. I was using bulky yarn, so I knew I needed a very simple and flat flower or it would overwhelm the whole hat. Here's how I made my
Six Petal Flower
Row 1: 6 sc in second ch from hook, join with sl st to first sc
Row 2: ch 2, dc, ch 2, sl st into same st, *sl st into next st, ch 2, dc, ch 2, sl st into same st* around, sl st into 1st sc and finish off. Use tail ends to sew onto hat.
I hope you enjoy these little embellishments to The Spiral Beanie Pattern!
