Earlier this week I shared patterns for the Mini Country Cottage Stocking and Mini Country Cottage Mitten, and this mini beanie is the final addition to the trio! These Country Cottage Minis are all mini versions of 3 of my original Country Cottage designs!
The Country Cottage Collection features many items all with the same amazing texture! There is a large variety of wearables and accessories that are perfect for the colder months. These mini versions would pair so well with many of the other designs to make for the perfect gift! Check out the other Country Cottage patterns HERE!
You can find the ad-free, printable PDF for these patterns in my Etsy shop and Ravelry. This PDF includes all 3 of the Country Cottage Minis patterns in one!
The Mini Country Cottage Beanie is the mini version of my original Country Cottage Beanie design! This beanie features the same great texture as the other Country Cottage designs, plus a ribbed brim. It can be topped with a pom pom and is perfect for Fall and Winter!
When I was trying to pick which patterns I should make minis of the beanie was an easy choice! It’s the most simple to make of the three Country Cottage Minis and a beanie is just the perfect winter accessory! You can make your mini in any colors and top it with a pom pom for extra fun!
For my mini beanie I used Red Heart Super Saver but feel free to use any medium (4) weight yarn! One of the best parts of this pattern is that is uses a minimal amount of yarn so you can use any left over yarn you may have in your stash!
