Crochet Beanie With Stretch

The simple truth of crochet beanies is they don't have a lot of stretch to them when compared with knitted beanies. This can make crochet beanies a little more difficult to get the fit right. There are few ways to make a crochet beanie with  stretch.

I'm only going to list projects that I've talked about on the blog before. Yes there are more. I will update the list as I share them with you.

Discarded UFO's

Original Tally: I lost count but lets hazard a guess at about 20

Discarded since:  as at 24 July
I've frogged a black crochet snood to use the yarn for the spool knitting project.
I gave up on a beaded snood and decided to keep the beaded section to use later. For what I do not know.
I've frogged a crochet project that I got about 5 rows into at some point. It was made with the yarn the Tunisian crochet is being worked in and I need the yarn for that project instead.

Repurposed UFO's

Tally: 4


A project can only really be classified as a work in project if I've actually worked on it recently.
These are all items I haven't shared with you yet but I will link to them as I do.

  • crochet rug Completed
  • crochet entrelac project - update: the entrelac has become a UFO but it also became the Spiral Beanie. This means the entrelac project is being moved to the UFO list and the beanie to the completed UFO's list
  • embroidery project (no post)
  • current t-shirt yarn project - update: in use but I would like to increase the size (I'm not going to write about this one)
  • Tunisian Crochet Sampler - currently stalled with sporadic progress
  • white slubby cotton granny squares

Writing it all down is a little scary.


  1. All I can say is that you are very talented and very busy. Most of my projects all fit in the UFO category and occasionally I have a work in progress. Thanks for this amazing list. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your creations. :)

    1. It's crazy how many projects end up UFO's isn't it? The hardest part is not starting new projects. I hope to see some of your UFO's turn into WIP's.

  2. I'm fascinated by all your historical things, and all the words I don't know.

    1. Hahaha, I guess it is a lot of an usual terms for non-historical costumey people.

  3. Since I'm reading old posts, I may have missed it, but what does it mean to "frog" something? :)

    1. 'Frog' is a term used in crochet and knitting for ripping your work out 'rip-it, rip-it, rip-it' sounds like a frog. lol
