Periwinkle Ridge- Free Pattern

1023180919a

I have to admit, I’m kinda hooked on the crochet cross-stitch right now. It’s so easy to make, and it looks so nice. Here I’ve incorporated this stitch pattern into a simple dc beanie to form four ridges down the sides of the hat, and then finished it all off with a basic sc trim so as to not take away from the ridge-effect. The Vanna’s Choice yarn is very soft and stretches nicely. I can’t wait for the cold weather’s arrival so that I can wear it!  I hope you’ll like it too! If you do, then…
