Inspiration

After designing so many patterns for the Country Cottage Collection, I obviously needed to add a beanie! I love crochet beanies, they’re so warm and comforting in the cold months. My favorite thing about the Country Cottage Beanie, other than the incredible look and texture, is that this is truly a unisex beanie. The style is neutral and looks great on any age and any gender. Unisex patterns or patterns for men can be difficult to find so I’m really happy to have this one available for anyone to enjoy!

Yarn

The Country Cottage Beanie uses a medium (4) weight yarn. I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn in the color Light Sage, though you can use any medium weight yarn! Be sure to check your gauge before starting to ensure proper sizing! Some other yarns I think that would work great for this pattern are: Lion Brand Yarn Color Theory, Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch, and Red Heart Super Saver.

I made my beanie in one solid color but you can make yours in as many colors as you’d like! Some fun suggestions are to create stripes or color blocking!

When your beanie is done, use matching or contrasting yarn to create a yarn POM POM for on top of your beanie. Not sure how to make and attach a pom pom? Check out this video tutorial I created to show you how!


Sizes

The Country Cottage Beanie pattern includes 4 sizes: Baby, Child, Teen/Adult Small, and Adult Large. To ensure proper sizing it’s always best to measure your head or the head of the person you’re making the beanie for. To measure the circumference of the head: wrap the measuring tape around the back of the head, over the ears, and around the forehead.

You should also check your gauge by making a gauge swatch. Checking your gauge ensures that if our tensions or yarn are different, then you can make any adjustments needed. Follow the gauge pattern below and adjust your hook size if needed.

The beanie is designed to be slightly smaller than the head circumference since it will stretch quite a bit. The brim length is the same for all sizes. We will make a 4″ long brim, that when folded over will be 2″. You can easily adjust the length of the brim to be how ever long you’d like! When starting the brim just chain as many as you’d like to get your desired length.

See the side chart below to find your size and see how much yarn is needed per size.

The following instructions will create a 4” long brim that when folded over will bet 2” long. Feel free to adjust the length of the brim by chaining as many as you’d like to get your desired length.

CH 14

Row 1: SC in the 2nd CH from the hook. SC in each ST across. (13) SL ST in the next 2 STs from the last round of the beanie. Turn.

Row 2: Now working back down the brim, SC BLO in each ST across. CH 1 & turn. (13)

Row 3: SC BLO in each ST across. (13) SL ST in the next 2 STs from the beanie. Turn.

Repeat Rows 2 & 3 until the end of Row (39, 47, 55, 63) and only one ST remains from the last round of the beanie.

SL ST into the last ST from the beanie. Turn.

Working into the starting chain and the last row of the cuff, SL ST in each CH & the back loop only of each ST across. Tie off yarn and weave in ends.

And you’re all done! Feel free to add a yarn or faux fur pom pom to top it off!
