Starry Night Reflective Beanie

Red Heart has come out with an exciting new yarn called Reflective.  Right now, it is pretty hard to come by.  I happened to be in the right place at the right time and managed to get ahold of some. For the most part, I am loving it. It is a bulky weight yarn. (5) I love the way the weight of it feels. So, maybe that doesn’t make total sense, but it has a comfortable heaviness to it. The reflective thread, woven into the skein, creates an amazing effect when it’s hit with light. (You can see it in the picture when the hat is photographed with a flash.)

Starry Night Beanie

Materials:
Red Heart Reflective
1 Skein Black
1/2 Skein Grey
J hook
Tapestry needle for working in ends

Gauge:
6 DC = 2 in.
4 rows = 2 in.

DC – Double Crochet
SC – Single Crochet
Join – (Join the end of each round by slip stitching into the top of the first Double Crochet

Work rows as follows: Start with black for first three rows. Switch to grey on Row 4 and Row 5, back to black for four rows and back to grey for Row 10 and Row 11, then back to black for the remainder of the hat.

Start with Magic Ring, Chain 2
Row 1:  9 DC in Magic Ring, join. Chain 2
Row 2: 2 DC in each stitch and join. Chain 2.
Row 3: 2 DC in first stitch 1 DC in next stitch, Repeat until you have come back around and join at the top of your first DC. Chain 2.
Row 4:  2 DC in first stitch 1 DC in next 2 stitches, Repeat until you have come back around and join at the top of your first DC. Chain 2.
Row 5:  2 DC in first stitch 1 DC in next 3 stitches, Repeat until you have come back around and join at the top of your first DC. Chain 2.
Row 6:  2 DC in first stitch 1 DC in next 4 stitches, Repeat until you have come back around and join at the top of your first DC. Chain 2.
Row 7- 15: DC in each stitch around, joining and chaining 2 after each round.
Row 16: SC in each stitch around, join and tie off.

Use a tapestry needle to weave end threads into the hat.

For a slouchier hat, The length of this hat can be adjusted by adding additional rows before you add the row of SC.

EDITED: The original pattern listing had row 7 adding 2dc after every 8 stitches. After retesting the pattern I found this made the hat too big. I have removed that line from the pattern.
