- 2 x balls of aran/bulky (chunky) weight multicoloured yarn in wine; 50g/131yd/120m
- Sizes 6mm (US J/10, UK 4) and 7mm (US K/10½, UK 2) crochet hooks
- Head circumference 54–58cm (21¼–23in)
Gauge (tension) sample:
- 4 pattern repeats and 5 rounds using the 7mm (US L/11, UK 2) crochet hook = 4 x 4in (10 x 10cm). Change your hook if necessary to obtain the correct gauge (tension).
- Work in rounds following the crochet chart. Start every round with 3 ch instead of the 1st dc (UKtr) and join up into a round with a sl st into the 3rd ch from the start of the round. The numbers on the chart show the round transition. Rounds 1–4 are shown in full. After this, rep round 4 until the required length is achieved.
- Start the beanie at the crown and work in rounds down to the bottom edge.
- Using the 7mm (US L/11, UK 2) crochet hook, begin with 5 ch and join into a ring with a sl st.
- Rounds 1–4: Follow the chart, working the clusters of 3 dc (UKtr) in the fi rst round into the centre of the ring.
- Rounds 5–12: Rep round 4.
- Round 13: 1 ch, * 2 sc (UKdc) around the next 2 ch of the previous round * , rep from * to * all around. Close up the round with a sl st (40 sts).
- Rounds 14–17: Start each round with 1 ch, then work sc (UKdc) into each st around; join with a sl st.
- Once you have made the hat, cut off the yarn at the point where the colour corresponds to that required for the flower centre (pink in the example below).
- Using the 6mm (US J/10, UK 4) hook, 5 ch and join into a ring with sl st.
- Round 1 (pink centre): Work round 1 of the crochet chart.
- Round 2 (deep pink petals): Cut the yarn and find a length in the colour you want for the petals. For each petal, work under a 2-ch of the previous round: * 1 sc (UKdc), 2 ch, cluster of 3 dc (UKtr), 2 ch, 1 sc (UKdc) *, rep from * to * another four times. Close up the round with a sl st.
- Use yarn from the ball in the required colour.
- Using the 6mm (US J/10, UK 4) hook, 5 ch in purple or deep pink and join into a ring with a sl st.
- Round 1 (in purple or deep pink): Work round 1 of the crochet chart.
- Round 2 (in red or purple): For each petal, work under a 2-ch of the previous round: * 1 sc (UKdc), 2 ch, 4 dc (UKtr), 2 ch, 1 sc (UKdc) * , rep from * to * another four times. Close up the round with a sl st.
