  1. Hi Elena, I love shell stitches and this hat is adorable, but I have short hair and slouchies don’t look right on me. So to make this a shell slouchie into a reg beanie cap style, would I just follow the basic pattern but just make fewer rounds? I can follow a standard beanie crown for sizing but I just wanted to see if you think I’m going to go about this correctly… thx for the pattern!

  2. could you please explain to me what a reverse single crochet is……i am still very new at crochet. thank you.

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs :

      You work in reverse. So where you usually do a single crochet working from right to left… With a the rev sc you work from the left to the right. You can find videos on line if you need more direction.

    • This is also called the crab stitch. YouTube has great tutorials for it.

  3. Cute beanie! I love the buttons!
