Colorado Beanie - Top Down | Posh Pooch Designs

I am so excited to release our 
first Crochet Pattern of 2016.

The Colorado Beanie - Top Down.

The perfect Beanie for the Colorado Lover!  

And who isn't?

It is perfect for skying, climbing, hiking, Jeeping or 

what every fun thing you love to do in Colorado!

It is perfect for Men, Women and Boys and Girls! 


This New Design was in the works for a while.
I was inspired by a Eyeball beanie
  I saw a boy wearing,
when I took my grand daughter to the local
 pumpkin patch.

It was knit, but I thought that style would look great
 using our Colorado Flag.
So I made a sketch and went off my drawing.
And This Awesome Beanie hat
 is what I came up with.
I absolutely love it, 
and love wearing it all over our town. 
I get lots of compliments!

I chose to use worsted weight yarns, 
and designed the beanie in 3 sizes.

The Blue portion of the beanie is worked by carrying
Your yarn across the white stripes.

Be careful to not pull the yarn to tight or it will bunch,
 and not lay flat.
