Building a Bullseye Beanie

A funny thing happened in the middle of March. Over the course of two weeks, I sold two complete Bullseye Beanies and the pattern for one.

Time to restock... 

It starts at the top with the "bullseye" section.


Then comes the next stripe out.


At the blue stripe, the beanie starts to take shape.

And that's as far as I've gotten. I have a few more rounds to complete the blue before I switch to black. Then comes the white to finish it all off.

Bullseye Beanie, complete

I'm making the child size. I still have the regular size in stock. (The above picture is from before.)

As for my other projects, my scarf is coming along slowly. I have a pretty good idea what I want to make that'll fit H. Hopefully I'll get it finished in time... 

Do you have any projects in progress? Have you ever tried archery?

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

  1. Hopefully birds don't think it's a target.
    Never tried archery.

  2. I have done archery a few times, but I'd really like to make it a more regular occurrence. Probably couldn't wear that hat to the range, though...

    It's a cute hat. It's really interesting to see how they come together.

  5. Love the beanie! I am a quilter and just finished a 51x55 child's quilt for a gr-child due in May. Now I am working on a crib quilt.

    No archery for me. But, it always had appeal when I was late teens.

  7. My dad was very into archery when I was in my early teens, so I tried it then. I actually really enjoyed it, and might have kept going, but I wasn't old enough for any of the clubs without a parent.

    It looks like your beanie is coming along nicely.

  8. No projects, no archery. I feel I lead a boring life! :D

    1. Nah. My question wasn't general enough. It's a problem I have during A to Z.

  9. Crocheting - since 1970. Archery - no. I wanted so much to sign up for it in college (I had read way too much Robin Hood as a kid). Was always a conflict with classes I needed to take. Then the years passed and - no excuse. No excuse.
    Except I suspect my arrows would never hit their target, based on my experiences with bowling. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. At the place my niece and nephew used to shoot, there were all sorts of archers. Lots of older folks did it just for the fun of it. It's never too late ;)

  12. Funny how things sell like that sometimes. Happy restocking!

  13. Nice! Oh, I adored archery at summer camp. SO had a nice bow, but for a left handed person, which caused me to never try it. Best to stick with my dominant hand when it comes to weaponry. I'm still busy writing, writing, writing (when I'm not stalking musicians). ~grin~ Be well!

    1. Yeah, I think archery is something you totally should do with your dominant hand.

  15. Looks like a great hat to wear when the weather is cool outside.

    1. Apparently there are still swaths of the country that could.
