Instructables
With cool weather coming in, it might be a good idea to make a few of these to keep your head warm, as well as anyone you care about. This is a simple Skull Cap that is pretty easy to make and can work up pretty quickly; all in all, it took me about 3.5 hours to make and document.




MATERIALS:


- 1 skein of your favorite color, or a few balls in favorite color scheme
- Size K/10.5-6.50MM Crochet hook
-Yarn Needle


REQUIRED STITCH KNOWLEDGE:

- Singe Crochet [S.C.]
- Double Crochet [D.C.]
      Front Post Double Crochet [FP-DC]
      Back Post Double Crochet [BP-DC]
- Triple/Treble Crochet [T.C.]


SHORTHAND LEGEND:

Ch. = CHAIN
INC^2 = INCREASE (2 stitches in 1)
S.C. = SINGLE CROCHET
FP-DC = FRONT POST - DOUBLE CROCHET
BP-DC = BACK POST - DOUBLE CROCHET
T.C. = TRIPLE/TREBLE CROCHET

(this is the stitch pattern)(this is how many times you repeat it) = [final stitch count at the end of the round]



*This pattern is for the purple, teal(?), and black beanie and is worked in a continuous spiral*


- Ch. 2; S.C.(8) = [8]
- (INC^2)(8) = [16]
- (S.C., INC^2)(8) = [24]
- (S.C., INC^2, S.C.)(8) = [32]
- [S.C.(3), INC^2](8) = [40]
- [S.C.(4), INC^2](8) = [48]
- [S.C.(5), INC^2](8) = [56]
- T.C.(56) = [56]

- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]

- [BP-DC(5), FP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [BP-DC(5), FP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [BP-DC(5), FP-DC(3)](7) = [56]

- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]

- [BP-DC(5), FP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [BP-DC(5), FP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [BP-DC(5), FP-DC(3)](7) = [56]

- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]

- [FP-DC(1), BP-DC(1)](28) = [56]
- [FP-DC(1), BP-DC(1)](28) = [56]
- [FP-DC(1), BP-DC(1)](28) = [56]

Finish Off and weave in any loose ends

Step 1: The Base

- Ch. 2; S.C.(8) = [8]
- (INC^2)(8) = [16]
- (S.C., INC^2)(8) = [24]
- (S.C., INC^2, S.C.)(8) = [32]
- [S.C.(3), INC^2](8) = [40]
- [S.C.(4), INC^2](8) = [48]
- [S.C.(5), INC^2](8) = [56]
- T.C.(56) = [56]

Step 2: Beginning the Basket Weave

- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
- [FP-DC(5), BP-DC(3)](7) = [56]
