The crochet camel stitch might be one of my favorite textures to incorporate into my hats and scarves. The knit-look stitches are really wonderful for adding a line of texture, as you can see in my Star Sand Hat.
The problem, though, is that I hadn’t found a way to work a hdc through the 3rd loop in rows without creating a ribbed look. This meant that while my hats looked great, I was limited to working in the round to make a matching crochet star stitch cowl, for example.
Cowls are great- and in fact I personally prefer them to scarves, but I know that most men would much prefer a long scarf to a cowl. So it took me a long time- about 2 years- to design the matching scarf for my most popular mens hat: the Silver Beach Beanie.
But now, this gorgeous crochet beanie has a matching hat that truly looks like a perfect match!
