Easy HDC Crochet Slouchy Beanie

**pics to come**


Yarn - worsted weight
Hook - 6.5


To begin - chain 4, sl st to first ch on hook to make a loop. Chain 1.


Row 1 - 8 HDC in loop, sl st to first stitch to join. Chain 1.


Row 2 - 2 HDC in each stitch around (total 16 HDC), sl st to first stitch to join. Chain 1.


*in below rows, first stitch is the same stitch you joined to


Row 3 - HDC in first stitch, 2 HDC in next, repeat around = 24 HDC, sl st to join and chain 1


Row 4 - HDC in first stitch, HDC in next stitch, 2 HDC in next, repeat around =  32 HDC, sl st to join and chain 1


Row 5 - HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 2 stitches, 2 HDC in next, repeat around = 40 HDC, sl st to join and chain 1


Row 6 - HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 3 stitches, 2 HDC in next ,repeat around = 48 HDC, sl st to join and chain 1


Row 7 - HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 4 stitches, 2 HDC in next, repeat around = 56 HDC.


DO NOT SL ST TO JOIN. From this row on (or row 8 if making large hat) you will crochet in the round.


*to make a large hat row 8 would be HDC in first stitch, HDC in next 5 stitches, 2 HDC in next, repeat around = 64 HDC.


To continue - HDC in the top of the HDC where you would normally sl st to join. Insert stitch marker. Crochet in the round until you have 26 rows. When you complete the 27th row, you will taper with 1 sc, then 1 sl st. Tie off yarn and weave in ends.

There are thousands of crochet tutorials online, while this is how I make my dishcloths, if you do find a duplicate tutorial it is purely coincidental.

Quick Crochet Coffee Cozy - Make in less than 15 min!

I've not been well the past few months (not to worry you, all is on the mend) and one thing that helps me mentally is "Craft Therapy". Crocheting is my comfort craft, when I crochet I feel better. So to feel better, I crochet.

I'm enjoying quick gratification when I crochet at the moment and these Coffee Cozies are just the thing. They keep my mind and hands occupied and can be done in under 15 min including sewing in those pesky ends.


Quick Coffee Cozy

Yarn - Worsted weight
Hook - 6mm (H)

Notes:
- the chain 1's do not equal a stitch
- there are lots of youtube tutorials on the reverse single crochet edging, sometimes called crab stitch

Chain 23 and sl to form circle, be sure not to twist.

Row 1: Chain 1, hdc into same stitch as sl st and hdc in each chain around, sl to top of 1st hdc (23)
Row 2 - 3: repeat above (each row will have 23 st)
Row 4: Chain 1, hdc into same stitch and 1 hdc in the next 11 stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch, 1 hdc in each remaining stitch, sl to top of 1st hdc (24 stitches)
Row 5-7: Chain 1, hdc into same stitch and hdc in each st around, sl st to top of 1st hdc (24 stitches)
Row 8 - Chain 1, reverse single crochet in each stitch around (24 times), sl to 1st to the chain 1 and tie off.
Sew in ends and you're done!
