Rugged Slopes Beanie & Messy Bun Crochet Pattern

WoW!  I can finally take a breath and add one of my newest designs for you to my website, the Rugged Slopes Beanie & Messy Bun Crochet Pattern.  This crochet pattern is a 4-in-1 pattern.  As you can see by the pictures above there are quite a few different versions.  In the pattern here on the website I give you instructions for a Beanie and Messy Bun that can be turned into 4 different versions.  You will see once you get into the pattern.

There has been so much excitement for me already this year!  I feel like I am on top of the world!  I have had a CAL already this year, which can be found in our Units Section at our Facebook Group Crochet-A-Long with Us.  I have been in 2 crochet pattern giveaways on Facebook and Instagram.  I hosted a Blog Hop for Valentine’s Day.  I released the Fairland Sweater as a FREE crochet pattern.  Now, in April I will be hosting a month long CAL on Facebook with one of my newest designs, the Fairland Cardigan!  So watch for a post about this in the next couple of weeks!  You can find out about all of my exciting adventures this year here on my website!

On top of all the excitement going on here at Jo’s Crafty Hook I have been learning a lot of new stitches and one of them is featured in this crochet pattern.  It is called the Sedge Stitch, I hope you fall in love with it as much as I have!

Now that I have shared my exciting year 2020 let me share with you the Rugged Slopes Beanie and Messy Bun crochet pattern.  There will be a matching Cowl added to the website next week, so be sure to look for that.  Below you will find I am doing size Small, if you would like to do the Medium or Large, you can find the pdf crochet pattern at my Ravelry Store here or at my Etsy Shop here.
