Bellisfaire Beanie – Finished Project!

acadia yarnBack in March I bought two skeins of this gorgeous Acadia yarn by the Fibre Company from Fig Tree Yarns! Just one of many purchases from the Edinburgh Yarn Festival!

I bought it because I wanted to make the Bellisfaire Beanie from the Crochet One-Skein Wonders book. The skeins cost £12 each, which was a little more than I ideally wanted to pay, but the yarn is silk, alpaca and merino.

And just look at that colour! It’s a beautiful ‘air force’ blue shade in natural light, and it’s so smooth. It’s really easy to work with, which is always a bonus.

So how did I actually get on?

Bellisfaire Beanie

I used a 3.75mm hook for the edge, which is just plain half-double crochet, and a 4mm hook for the main shell pattern. The pattern features an optional picot edging but I preferred it without.

I actually started it on April 5th and had it finished on April 8th! It’s a very easy pattern, and obviously if you use the yarn they recommend then you do only need one skein.

I was a little worried about the size because the pattern comes in small and medium, and I wasn’t sure if the medium might be a little small, but it’s actually a perfect fit.

The book is ideal for quick projects if you need a gift in a hurry, too. This is my second finished project from Crochet One-Skein Wonders (affiliate link) and it’s definitely worth checking out if you enjoy crochet and you like speedy projects that won’t take long.

What’s on your hook at the moment?
