July 3, 2020

The City Lights Beanie Crochet Pattern uses one of my favorite stitch techniques, HDC in the 3rd loop. I used a fun variegated yarn with a matching solid to make the bright stripes.

  1. Please help me with the joining with a slip stitch when working in back look (BLO) ( I am understanding your use of the “3rd loop” to be the same as the Back Loop. My seam when working in the third loop is really obvious and UGLY.

    1. Hi! The 3rd loop is not the same as back loop only πŸ™‚ The third loop will be the bar across the back side of the stitch. And when joining, I would join to the top of the first hdc. Hope that helps!

  2. Hi Breann,

    Thank you for the pattern. Can you tell me which side is the β€œright” side of the work? Also, did you cut the yarn with each new color join or did you carry the yarn on the back side of the work?

    Thank you.

  3. Would you happen to have a pic of the top of the hat? When I work the first 3 rows, it seems as the yarn that I am carrying, is going up the outside of the hat? Should I be working the first few rows in the same color?

  4. Hi! What are the 2 names of the yarn colors you used from I Love This Yarn at Hobby Lobby? They are great! Also, how’d you weave in all those ends without it showing on the inside or did you carry up the color to each row? Any tips would be helpful. Thank you.

    1. Hi! I carried the colors up. Sorry, I really don’t know what the colors are. They were just from my stash πŸ™‚
