To Celebrate our Amazing Grace Crochet Charity Drive… Here is my 9th Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern!!

Keeping in the style of the Amazing Grace Stitch Pattern… This hat has added texture and is fun to make using more than one color… The Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and my dearest friend Sandra Kay Gilb who passed away in 2007 from this unfortunate disease.  Please consider paying it forward to those who are suffering or recovering from cancer by donating items made from my free patterns…

 

Amazing Grace Blissful Beanie

Materials

Yarn ~ 125-150 yards Worsted Weight Yarn (Pictured above in Brown and Cream is Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand Yarn)

Shop for your yarn needs at Michaels Craft Store Online!! Affiliate Link

Although all worsted weight yarn is  graded to be a #4, there is variance between brands… I found Red Heart With Love and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice to be a great weight for this hat and  also soft.  Caron Simply Soft was wonderful for the softness, but made the hat slightly smaller.

Hook ~ I

Scissors and Yarn Needle

 

Stitches

St – Stitch     Sl St – Slip Stitch    Ch – Chain     Sc – Single Crochet     HDC – Half Double Crochet     FPSC – Front Post Single Crochet
