Six Post Yarmulke – Makes a great gift, spread some love!

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

A lovely woman in my knit and crochet group suggested we make Yarmulkes and send them to Tree of Life Synagogue to show love, friendship, and solidarity. I thought that was a perfect idea! I made a few single crochet versions and then decided I wanted to make some that were more “me”. So I came up with the Six Post Yarmulke. It’s made out of post stitches and features six increases in each round to symbolize the six points of the Star of David. The pattern will work with nearly any yarn in any weight up to DK or Worsted (yarn that is too thick will make a VERY thick Yarmulke.) Just choose your yarn and a coordinating hook, then follow the pattern and just keep going until you’ve reached the size you want. Happy crocheting, and use or gift your Yarmulke in peace and friendship.
