I had so much fun designing this Snowy Mountain Beanie!!  I was inspired by my Rainbow Dash Blanket Pattern and using one skein of Caron Cakes in “Cake Pop”, I was able to make 3 hats in the same colors, but different color striping… I loved this so much and if you have followed me long… You know how much I love self striping yarn!!

snow-mountain-beanies-free-crochet-pattern


Materials:

Yarn:  120 yards worsted weight yarn, shown here in Caron Cakes “Cake Pop”.  Ones 383 yd skein will make all three hats!!  What a bargain!!

Hook:  J

Size:

Brim 19″ unstreached, Crown 21″ unstreatched, Top to bottom 9″ unstreatched. If making large circumferences, you may want to up your hook size.

Gauge:

2″ x 2″ swatch = 6 double crochet x 3 rows – Make a 4″ x 4″ swatch and then measure the middle 2″ x 2″ to get a good gauge. A small swatch won’t give a good test.

Don’t forget the gauge is important for the fit of the hat!

Stitches:

Sp – Space     St – Stitch     Sl St – Slip Stitch     Ch – Chain     Sc – Single Crochet     Dc – Double Crochet     Sk St – Skip Stitch   Trc – Triple Crochet     Bl – Back Loop

FPTrc – Front Post Triple Crochet~ Yarn over 2 times, insert hook around designated post starting in the front, go around the back of the stitch and around to the front of the other side of the stitch, draw up a loop. Pull through 2 loops 3 times.

*TIPS*  Make sure you make your starting chain even and not tight.  This will result in the brim being to small.  Also when working on the brim rounds 1-5, you will want to make sure you do not crochet snug stitches.

**If you have trouble with the starting chain and first 2 rows being to tight to fit around your head, go up another size hook for these rounds only after checking gauge

**Please check your gauge before starting

 


Instructions:
