I am so excited to share this pattern with you! The Cobblestone Beanie uses the new Caron Pantone yarn. I have been seeing this yarn all over Instagram and Facebook lately, and decided to give it a try. If you don’t know anything about this yarn, it is a mix of nylon, acrylic and Merino wool. This yarn is so incredibly soft! I can’t stop touching it. It feels very luxurious. It comes in braids that are made up of five different colors. It also comes in solid colors as well.
If you visit the Yarnspirations website, you will find all the different color combinations for this yarn. You can also use their Color Play tool which allows you to choose a specific color palette. The tool then gives you suggestions for how to combine the colors together. I found this tool so much fun to use! At the moment, it seems you can only purchase this yarn on the Yarnspirations website or at Michaels. I bought my yarn in-store at Michaels and used two 50% coupons, one for each braid. I spent a while choosing which colors to go with and eventually settled on the all cream color called Coconut Cream and a mix of neutrals called Provincial Lilac.
I really do like this yarn. I absolutely love playing with color and this yarn lets you do just that. I hope you enjoy the Cobblestone Beanie pattern I came up with!
- Knowledge of how to change colors and carry yarn are needed to crochet this pattern. There are numerous video tutorials on YouTube showing this technique. I like this tutorial HERE.
- Start the first stitch of every round in the same stitch as your join unless otherwise instructed.
- Always join rounds with a slip stitch.
- Because this pattern uses five different colors, the pattern will refer to these colors as color A,B,C,D and E.
- To give the band a cleaner edge, work your slip slip under both loops in the first and last stitch of the row.
2 braids of Caron Pantone yarn. You will not need the full 2 braids. You can use the leftover yarn for a pom-pom though!
