My newest free crochet pattern which is called Hubby’s Home Beanie has a special little story that goes with it. Let me tell it to you before you get to the pattern.
Recently my husband had to travel a lot. During his last travel I went to Michael’s and got this beautiful yarn that I had never seen before. It is called Izaac Mizrahi Craft by Premier Yarns. I knew right away I had to create beanie that I would eventually call Hubby’s Home Beanie as my husband is finally home and won’t have to travel for awhile.
The yarn is so perfect for a man’s beanie. Even my husband was impressed and loved it right away and he usually does not like beanies and considering this yarn has a bit of a metallic touch to it, I was even more surprised.
Furthermore, the yarn color is called Algonquin which I personally do not know how to pronounce, but it is just beautiful and soft and bulky. It has has 80% acrylic, 8% metallic and 2 % polyamide.
I used a 6.0mm hook for this yarn and this pattern. In fact, the Hubby’s Home Beanie is so easy to make, you won’t believe how fast it made. The color changes is really what makes this pattern so unbelievably gorgeous and special. I do not think I ever worked with yarn that had color changes this stunning.
The pattern Hubby’s Home Beanie itself can be very easily adjusted to any head size, even though I wrote it for a teen/adult head size. I made a special tutorial where I teach you how to adjust any hat or beanie pattern to the size you need it to be in. Please check my tutorial HERE for more information on it.
Well, besides that my hubby is finally home, the beanie also got the name Hubby’s Home Beanie from the recent photoshoot I did with him.
Now getting my husband to be on a picture that is published online and will forever be online is a hard thing for him. He really does not like to be present online as he prefers his privacy. But this time he made in exception in order to make up for the times he has been traveling. And I love him for that so much! 🙂
