Waves of Plaid Crochet Beanie Pattern

Skill level: Intermediate

The intricate pattern may look difficult, but it's actually quite easy.

Use up your stash with this four color beanie. Small amounts of each color mean you can make a couple beanies from just one skein of each color.

Using the Fair Isle technique this beanie will fit all ages and can be made in all colors. The ones pictured are just a touch of the combinations you can create.

Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don't know how to do Fair Isle? Don't worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section (13 pages!!!) that will not only teach you how to create Fair Isle but also covers all of this:

  1. Color Changing throughout the beanie including at the round join.
  2. Catching the yarn to create short floats.
  3. How to keep your yarn untangled.
  4. Photo tutorial of stitches used on beanie brim.
  5. How to keep your seam straight on your beanie.
  6. How to make a magic adjustable loop.

Sizes Included are:

Baby: 15" circumference Child: 17" circumference Woman: 20" circumference Man: 22" circumference

The beanie includes full written instructions as well as a color chart for the Fair Isle portion.

The beanie pattern is in .pdf format so you will need Adobe Reader to open the document and print it.

Recommended Hook 3.5mm or 4mm hook depending on which size you are making.
