The end of 2019 really snuck up on me. I thought that i would have a ton of time to get the rest of my beanie patterns written up and published but unfortunately i have not. But fear not, because they are definitely still coming out to all of you fellow makers. But not right now.
Last post i mentioned how many hat patterns i have waiting for beanies, but i also mentioned that i have a ton of other types of patterns that I’m wanting to get out to your guys because they are super cute, and i can’t wait to make them and get them posted for you guys.
So I wanted to take a few seconds to kind of talk about this beanie pattern. I originally had my own pattern of this but i used an actual brim and i didn’t use and HDC to break up the pattern. I absolutely loved that beanie and it was something I was proud of. Recently though, i can’t get enough of my bandless brim patterns and i love working with them because it gives extra space for the pattern to be seen and i honestly love that.
I will be making a version of this in the other bandless brim i love which i love because it fits my tags so snugly in the little groove it makes that it looks like it’s all been fit together perfectly.
If you know how to do a single crochet, double crochet, and half double crochet, i promise you will will love this pattern. It’s so pretty and easy to follow once you get the hang of it and it works up quickly.
I hope you all love this pattern as much as i do! And i will be posting the alternative bandless brim version as soon as possible!
The Eastern Cedar Beanie
- 1 skein I love this yarn, or other comparable skein of yarn
- H / J Hook
- Yarn needle
- Pom and tag – optional.
FSC – foundation single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
SC – single crochet
DC – double crochet
Dec – decrease.
Whatever number of foundation stitches you start out with will be your stitch count for the remainder of the pattern until your decrease rows.
In decrease rounds, you will want to keep your pattern. So when you are dc, sc decreasing, you will want to do the first st as if you are double crocheting 2 together, but you will want to do the next st as you would a single crochet decrease so that it keeps the pattern of stitches.
You will always join to the first stitch of the previous round, and chain 1 after each round to begin the next.
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.
