DIY Knit Beanie
This post comes from one of the videos on the SarahBeautyCorner Youtube Channel! Check out her channel for more fashion, DIY and tutorials!
I have been wanting a Knit Beanie with my Fraternity letters on it for several months now! I've been searching the web trying to find Greek apparel shops that carry beanies for my specific organization... Needless to say, I found none! I contacted a few shops to inquire about getting a custom design, but I just wasn't willing to pay the custom design fees that doubled the price of the hat. So I decided, regardless to how long it will take and how much research I had to do, to make my own. I don't know why I hadn't tried months ago. I actually like DIY!
After doing a bit of research I FINALLY ran into the perfect tutorial on the SaraBeautyCorner Channel for the design that I was trying to accomplish. In the tutorial she also shows you how to make your own circular knitting loom. I've found that the ones sold in craft stores have looms that are spaced far apart, resulting in a loose knit pattern. I wanted a tight knit so that I could add on my Fraternity's letters by adding a duplicate stitch.
Things you will need:
- Yarn (however many different colors you want to use)
- A circular container (a little bigger than your head)
- 100 hair pins
- Glue gun
- Yarn needle
- Patience (LOL)
