DIY: Crochet Knit Stitch Beanie with Ribbing and Free Pattern

Crochet Knit Stitch BeanieCrochet Knit Stitch Beanie

This crochet knit stitch beanie is made with a fingering weight wool and made to look like knitting. I bought two beautiful colours of Schachenmayr Merino Extrafine 170 from the nearby  Ewe Knit shop and decided to make a finely crocheted hat. Since the hat is made of single crochet knit stitches, the hat fabric is quite dense and thus quite warm. I used extra Schachenmayr Merino Extrafine 170 in colour A to make a pompom to top it all off.

The hat has a back seam which gets pulled out of place when the hat is made up, so make sure you block the hat before you add the pompom. The crochet knit stitch beanie has a slightly stretchy ribbing which helps keep the hat nicely fitted to my head.
