My nickname for this fun hat is “The Free Fudge Beanie” and there are several good reasons why: You have the FREEDOM to choose whatever size you want using whatever yarn and hook you want AND you can easily correct any mistakes you make with a simple FUDGE fix here and there! (Fudge is term for tweaking or modifying!) So… FREE FUDGE!
The Bead Stitch is traditionally done with a double crochet post but I modified it by using a half double crochet. This makes the stitch appear fuller with less chance of the stitch’s “feet” peeping out below the wrap.
