Elliot Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern



Good morning beautiful people,

Today's beanie pattern is bursting full of textures! The beauty of it is, you only need to know how to do 3 stitches! DC, FPHDC and BPHDC. If you are not familiar with front and back post stitching, there is a great video on it HERE by the amazing Clare aka bobwilson123 that will help you out.
