Rebekah Haas Crochet – Treviso Faux Knit Beanie -FREE PATTERN

In my effort to create the ultimate simple beanie, I was inspired by the ancient ruins in Treviso – a city older than the Romans. The simple beauty of the ruins surrounded by lush foliage, juxtaposed with the modern advancements of the city are reflected in the traditional look of the faux knit beanie, our modern, colorful yarns can really shine against the simple stitch backdrop.

You’ll need one skein of Mary Maxim Prism yarn shown here in Denim Blues, a 6 (4.25 mm) hook, and an H – 8 (5.00 mm) hook, yarn needle to weave ends, thread needle (optional), a matching thread of choice (optional), button (optional), and faux fur Pom with elastic loop (optional).

Our most popular kit this season is the Tear Drop Throw.

The Tear Drop Throw is a challenge in the aspect that it will ask the crafter to pay close attention to gauge, stitch count, and placement of motifs. However, it will pique the curiosity by varying stitches and continuing to engage with the brilliance of colors in Mary Maxim Prism yarn.

    1. We do like to switch it up and feature both crafts. We do have a big knitting project coming soon where we have a multi part series on knitting vintage sweaters. Unfortunately due to some of the qualities of this yarn it’s better for crochet than it is for knit. There are only 3 patterns on this post that are knit.
