Bella's Beanie

As some of you know, I became Twilight obsessed after reading the books last year. I finally saw the movie, once I bought it on dvd, and have re-read all the books! Although, will I see the next movie in theaters- I don't know. I guess I'm not that obsessed. Matt and I rarely see movies in the theater anymore, but maybe I can get a group of girls to go! Anywho, I've been trying to recreate Bella's beanie, from the movie. I found this pattern, but had to totally recreate it. I thought I would post my pattern here, so I can link to it on my Ravelry account. :)

I didn't realize that you knew how to read those crocheting instructions. Very cool!

You have such talent!! I've definitely read all the books too-- once you pick one up, you're doomed! I'm hoping to see the new movie too, but it will probably be awhile...don't want to get run over by teen mobs! ;)

I saw you post on April Draven blog about her pattern being too small, Mine came out small too, like the size of my kids head. Going to Photograph it and take it apart and try yours.

I tried her pattern but had trouble, too. I'll have to try yours!
