Asper Beanie- A Free Pattern

The Holiday Stashdown is back again this year and is already several of weeks in! From September 3rd through December 10th, 15 different designers will be sharing a brand new free pattern with you all! I’ve been participating in the Holiday Stashdown CAL for a few years now. I always enjoy creating and designing for this event to help crocheters make gifts with the stash that the have on hand. This year, LoveCrochet generously provided the designers with yarn support, so all the designs for this event are made with Paintbox Yarns. For mine I chose Paintbox Simply DK in the colors Racing Green 127 and Granite Gray 106.  This yarn was wonderful to work it! It glided smoothly off of my hook and is very soft! I even have some extra yarn left and am excited to create another design with it! If you do not have this yarn you can use any weight #3 dk yarn that you have on hand.

How to Join the Holiday Stashdown CAL:

  • You can join in by crocheting the patterns as you have time.
  • Share your progress and post pictures of your finished projects. Tag your projects and posts #CALCentralCrochet#HolidayStashdown, and #lovecrochet on all social media. You can also tag the pattern designer and @lovecrochetcom on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter when you’re sharing project pictures.
  • If you’d like to chat with other crocheters, join the CAL Central Facebook group or the CAL Central Ravelry group.
  • By the end of the CAL, you’ll have up to 15 wonderful projects to gift or keep.

For more information on the Holiday Stashdown, please see Underground Crafter’s blog post.

The project that I designed for this stashdown is a warm and masculine beanie (although it looks great on women too!). I always find it difficult to find a good men’s beanie pattern, so I figured I would give it a shot and design my own! This one has the approval of both my husband (who is hard to please) and my son.
