A lovely crocheted beanie made with Sweet Rolls yarn. Premier Sweet Rolls yarn is a combination of 3 alternating colours in each ball. The most noticeable difference I found with this yarn is that the yarn is pre-wound into a ‘cake’ rather than a ball, this makes them really easy to use as a centre pull. Centre pull balls are great to use as they don’t roll around on the floor everywhere! I made this beanie in about 1 hour, then another 30 minutes or so to make the gorgeous pompom which sits proudly on top of the beanie.
You can slip stitch the bottom of the hat to make it a tighter fit around the head or you can SC around for a looser look.
