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? The designs in Crochet Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family (Leisure Arts #75358) use medium or bulky weight yarns.
