Persinette is a character in an old french fairytale, a girl with long tresses of golden hair, raised and concealed in a tall tower by a fairy… Perhaps you’ve heard of her by another name?

Immerse yourself in a world of fairytales and make a #Persinettebeanie for the little princess in your life, or take some time away from your responsibilities to have some fun whipping up this pattern just for yourself! Designed with a slightly slouchy fit, easily customise your new beanie by flipping up the brim for a more fitted look. However you style it, it will remind you every time you wear it to ‘let your hair down’ every once in a while!

Level of Difficulty:
This is an Intermediate pattern. It assumes comfortable knowledge of common crochet stitches as well as some more specialised (the herringbone stitch and a modified X-stitch.) However there are also full photo tutorials and explanations provided; if you are an adventurous beginner then go for it! I’m always here to help if you need it.

Please note: there are two pdfs available for download. The original contains full colour photos, images, and color-coded sizing instructions, whilst the ‘printer-friendly’ download is black and white text with no images. If using the printer-friendly option I would still encourage you to download the full original pdf so that you can refer to the photos for clarification if needed.
