A spider web beanie! I made this  hat  at the special request of my 5 years old little son. 
Now it's his favorite! I enjoyed making this hat!

I found this cute FREE PATTERN with photo tutorial by Silver Tears Blog.

Materials i used

- 5 mm crochet hook and 
- Aran weight yarn in light blue and deep red.

As always, I like to give my own touch to the things I make, so i made some changes.

I followed the pattern exactly, until the cuff. In the original pattern it is girly like, with a final round of shells. This doesn't works for a boy, so I modified the pattern for the cuff.

I opted for a ribbed cuff, using front post and back post stitches.

My cuff it is made of 3 rounds, like this:"1 front post hdc, 1 back post hdc" repeat around, like in the video of "RepeatCrafterMe" on YouTube bellow:

If I were to work this hat again, I would change the way the ​​vertical bars are made. Don't get me wrong! I'm not criticizing the original pattern, it's just the way I would do it. :)  

I would love that the vertical bars to be continuous and not interrupted, with small holes like they are now.

I think a good solution it could be to work the tr crochet around the post of the tr crochet from the previous round in the web color.

Happy Crochet!
