This easy Crochet Blush Beanie pattern uses a twist on the popular V-stitch and beautiful chainette yarn to make a pillow soft beanie perfect for cool days. Leave it as is or top it with a faux fur pom. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
Luxury Blush Yarn for a Luxury Crochet Beanie
This LB Collection Chainette yarn has been in my stash for a while. First I made the Blush Cowl, and now with the extra I decided that I needed to design a hat for a matching set. I love that the muted pink color is basically a neutral and goes with everything, and the yarn is so lightweight and warm at the same time. It is a perfect yarn to use for warm winter gear if you don’t want to feel weighted down.
Crochet V-Stitch with a Twist
If you haven’t tried the spike v-stitch yet, what are you waiting for?! I’ve used it in 4 patterns this season AND made a video tutorial for you to follow along with. It’s really a pretty beginner friendly technique if you know your basic DC and HDC stitches.
Need a Wool-Free Substitute?
LB Collection Chainette yarn was a beautiful yarn to use for this project. It is light, soft and airy. And that blush color is to die for! Almost any worsted weight or light bulky yarn works for this hat; if you are looking for a wool-free substitute you've got options! In some ways, this chainette yarn has similarities to Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. Any of the yarns I talk about in this article would make a good sub to use for this beanie. Just be sure to check your gauge if you decide to switch it up!
