Notes: This pattern is worked in continuous rounds which means that there is no joining at the end of each round. Place a stitch marker into the 1st stitch made on each round.
Starting at the Crown (top of beanie)

Rnd 1: 8 sc into the center of the ring. (8 sts)

All the best,
They’re fashionable. They’re famous. They’re those casual-yet-confident slouchy beanies worn by lots of big movie, television, and rock stars when they’re out and about. And now you can crochet your own celebrity beanies! These seven patterns by Lisa Gentry are based on the styles snapped by paparazzi from East Coast to West. Choose from five fabulous fashions for adults. Small children will look camera-ready in a semi-plaid beanie, while older children will adore their fun, textured toppers. Pair any of these beanies with large sunglasses, and let the world wonder–who’s that celebrity?
