A Mixed Stitch Crochet Beanie with Tons of Texture
The Cinnamon Cider Beanie has me dreaming of crisp autumn mornings, apple picking, pumpkin patches and wearing sweaters again. In the summer, these things feels so far away. In the winter, it feels like Fall was much too fleeting. Thankfully we can crochet pieces that give us that "the leaves are just starting to change color" vibe.
A Mixed Stitch Crochet Beanie with Tons of Texture
One of my favorite things to do with basic acrylic yarn is to design patterns that show off a LOT of texture. There's just something so pretty about a rich, solid color combined with the visual interest of mixed stitches that I love. Enter the Cinnamon Cider Beanie - our first project from this year's Seven Days of Scarfie collection.
Seven Days of Scarfie
Welcome to my Seven Days of Scarfie pattern event. This year all of our patterns will be made with one skein of simple worsted weight acrylic, BUT I also made them with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. You get to decide what yarn you're going to use. But one way or the other - we are going to make 7 projects in 7 days with 7 skeins (or less) of yarn!
I hope that you love each of these pattern collections as much as I do!

Crochet the Cinnamon Cider Beanie Two Ways
I decided to crochet the Cinnamon Cider Beanie in both worsted weight acrylic yarn and Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. I wanted to highlight how stunning pieces can look either way! The solid colored yarn really allows the textured stitches to shine, while the ombre effect of the Scarfie yarn adds its own visual interest. You really can't go wrong either way! I can't wait to see what yarn you decide to use.

How to Crochet the Bobble Stitch - Left Handed (Right Handed video loads with the page)
8 sts x 7 rows = 2" square in BLO SC
Length (adult): 9.75"
Width (adult): 8.5"
- The chain stitches at the beginning of each row/round do not count as a stitch.
- The end of each round is attached to the first st of the round with a sl st.
Bottom Ribbing - Working in rows
Row 1: SC in the second ch from the hook and SC across (12). Turn
Row 2-60: ch 1, working in BLO, SC across (12). Turn.
When you finish the ribbed band, fold it so that Row 1 and 60 are on top of one another. Working through the back loop of Row 60 and the front loop of Row 1, seam the two rows together by slip stitching across. Do not cut your yarn. Continue on to work in rounds along the “raw” edge of ribbed band.
Top of Beanie - Working in turning rounds
Round 1: ch 1, SC around the top of the band working one stitch per row (60). Attach to first SC of the round with a sl st.
Round 2: ch 2, DCX around
Round 3: ch 2, HDC around
Round 4: ch 2, TURN your work, *bobble, ch 1, sk 1, repeat from * around

Tie off leaving a long (approx. 12”) tail of yarn. Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn back and forth through the stitches of Round 14. Pull tight to cinch the top of the hat closed. Make and attach a pom pom if desired. Weave in all ends
