This third eye beanie was born from experimentation; I wanted to make some sort of eyeball beanie and was still fairly new to crochet. After crafting some basic round eyeball shapes, I decided to turn them into beanies, but I still wasn’t satisfied.
I messed around with placing double crochets around the edge of the white of the eyeball and decreasing the stitches in each row as I went. I sewed the edges of the eyes to the beanie (wow, that sounds really painful lol) and added a border of sc to the edge to create sort of an eyelid.
I really like the look of this third eye beanie! It was probably one of the first things that I made without a pattern. I just messed around with the look until I liked it!
As always, please contact me if you have any questions about the pattern. I have this huge fear that I don’t make any sense at all when I try to explain things to others.
For this pattern you’ll need white and black yarn for the eye, as well as two coordinating colors, one for the iris of the eye and one for the main color of the beanie. You’ll also need whatever hook you usually make beanies with (I usually use a K hook)
