The Timberhaven Beanie.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but i cannot, literally CANNOT stop designing beanie patterns. My next venture will be a lot smaller, and once i gather supplies i will definitely be sharing it with you. But for now, I have beanies stuck on repeat in my mind.

All of the patterns will be free, and listed here on my blog, but i do want to ad the ad free pdf purchase option for those who want to just simply print out a file and never have to refer back to the blog. But for those of you who keep coming back, i cannot express my gratitude for you. You are keeping me in a steady supply of designs added to my list. I have so many, and i do plan branching out to other patterns, eventually. But for now, let’s just wallow in all the glory that comes with cute beanies.

My obsession with texture and combining colors and beautiful color combinations has completely overrun into my crochet pattern design so there are a few that are repeat textures combined with other textures from other beanies. But i am in love with how they have turned out and i plan on have them all released before 2020 starts. But! I make no promises.

The timberhaven beanie was one of my favorite beanies to design because i’m in love with the alpine stitch, and i love ribbing. And there’s a certain way the yarn falls when you use the half double crochet a certain way that i just had to combine the two.

I did not write out a separate pattern for the child, or toddler (if you follow me, it’s my big kid and little kid sizing) versions but i did include directions on how you could make a few small changes to customize the size to those two smaller versions. Forgive me. I had so many patterns floating that i literally just kept moving on, and honestly I will probably revisit these patterns after the new year to design a custom pattern specifically for those sizes, but i REALLY want you all to see these gorgeous patterns I did manage to get written up.

Also, i want to add that a good bit of the hats to be released are warm enough to be winter hats so if you need super last minute gift ideas, these would be perfect!

If you don’t want to keep havig to refer back to the blog post, you can find an ad free pdf on etsy! And I will link Ravelry as soon as it’s available over there!

I also have to add. If you don’t want to change colors, you don’t have to. The beanie is gorgeous when its done without the color change and you can find that picture below to get an idea of how it would look.

ALSO, i used Hobby Lobby’s yarn for this, and you guys I am sold. I want all of it in every single color available.

MATERIALS NEEDED –

  • 1 skein loops and threads impeccable (or other comparable worsted weight yarn. OR two colors, if you’re changing colors midway.)
  • H hook, J hook, K hook. OR I hook, K hook, L hook. (check pattern notes)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Pom pom (optional)
  • Tag/button (optional)

ABBREVIATIONS AND STITCHES USED –

  • ST(s) – stitch(es)
  • CH – chain
  • FSC – foundation single crochet
  • HDC – half double crochet
  • BLO – back loop only (3rd loop on a half double crochet stitch.)
  • DC – double crochet
  • FPDC – front post double crochet
  • Decrease every stitch around – crochet two stitches together around.

PATTERN NOTES –

  • You will always join and ch 1.
  • You will always join to the first st of the previous round.
  • If you are choosing to use two colors, you will join new color at the end of round 12.
  • If you are using a thicker worsted weight, you can substitute with an I, K, and L hook, And I will label the changes for you throughout the pattern. The larger hook at the end helps keep the sides even. If using the I,K,L option, you will start with a FSC of 56 and decrease one or two rounds sooner depending on how slouchy you want your beanie.
  • Special note – Whatever your foundation stitch count is how many stitches you will have in your rounds until you start your decrease rounds. So for example – if you start with a foundation of 56, you will have 56 stitches in each round until you start decreasing.
