The Blossom Crochet Beanie is a quick and easy project that makes for a beautifully textured accessory. This beanie is a great beginner project that incorporates basic crochet stitches that are used in a cluster stitch. This gives the beanie a pretty “blossom” look.
The Blossom Beanie is crocheted flat in a rectangle. The band is crocheted first, then the body of the beanie is created by working along the long side of the band. There are a few decrease rows at the top but nothing a beginner crocheter can’t handle. The beanie is then folded in half and sewn up the side.
The yarn I used for this pattern is called 44th Street by Yarn Bee. This is a soft and lightweight yarn that consists of acrylic and polyamide. Although the label says it’s a category #3 light yarn, I would consider it more of a #2 sport weight. It comes is 10 colors ranging from pretty pastels to nice jewel tones.
Because this yarn is lighter than I anticipated, I decided to use two strands held together for this pattern. Even with the double strands, this beanie is very lightweight. I really like the look and feel of this beanie. It has beautiful texture and a nice slouch look.
If you are new to crochet and are looking for an easy yet beautiful beanie pattern, this is it! It’s super fast to make and incorporates a number of beginner stitches. I really hope you like the pattern!
