I don’t know about you, but I love a pop of color. Especially when that pop of color is combined with more muted or neutral shades.
The days are starting to get a lot colder here in Jersey. I don’t mind the cold, as long as I’m bundled up. But one thing I know that comes with the Winter months are more dreary and gray days…boo! It starts to get darker out earlier as well. But no matter how dreary the days may seem, there is always a sunrise to every day! Every morning there is a peek (or pop) of color you can see against the clouds. The sunrise was my inspiration for this beanie.
I came across this yarn color ( I have used this yarn before in my Woodland Scarf) that reminded me of a sunrise. I love the coral/red, white and brown colors. They go together so well.
This pattern is worked from the bottom up in a continuous round with the moss/linen stitch. This beanie works up extremely fast and is a great beginner friendly pattern. I finished this hat in under two hours watching Grey’s Anatomy and Chicago Med! I hope you enjoy the pattern and the pop of color that this beanie will add to your wardrobe!

Depending on the size of your head, your beginning stitch count may not be the same. That’s totally fine as long as your stitch count is an EVEN number! It just happened that 68 was my stitch count.
Fsc 67, on the 68th stitch join with a ss to your first fsc to form a circle. There is a very good video HERE that shows you how to join the bottom and top chain of your fsc. This is the method that I use to join. If you don’t feel comfortable with this method you can always ch. 68 and join with a ss to form a circle. Ch.1 sc in the same stitch and complete one round of sc. Join with a ss.
Ch.1, 2 sc in the same stitch, *ch.1, sk next stitch, sc in next* Repeat from *to* all the way around. DO NOT JOIN! Work pattern in continuous rounds. Continue working until your beanie measures approx. 7’ tall.
Once 7 inches tall:
Ch.1 and sc in the same stitch and each stitch around.
Now we will start our decreases:
Ch.1, sc in the next 2 stitches, then complete 2 sc decreases. *sc in the next 2 stitches, single crochet decrease in the next 2 stitches* Repeat from *to* all the way round. Join with a ss.
Ch.1, sc in same stitch and every stitch around. Join with a ss.
Ch.1 and sc decrease in every stitch all the way around. Join with a ss.
Repeat first round
Bind off leaving a 12″ tail. Thread a tapestry needle and weave in and out of each sc post. When you reach the beginning again, flip the beanie upside and pull the string so the hole closes. You will then stitch the hole closed. Bind off and weave in any loose ends.
