The crochet Coffee Bean Beanie uses the bean stitch and ombré yarn to make a warm and textured beanie perfect for your fall/winter wardrobe. This free crochet pattern complements others from my Seven Days of Scarfie Collections and uses less than one skein of yarn. Keep reading for the free pattern.
Crochet the Coffee Bean Beanie with Lightness and Texture
The Coffee Bean Beanie was designed to complement the Coffee Bean Infinity Scarf. The bean stitch and Scarfie yarn are a match made in heaven. The loftiness of the yarn plus the squish of the bean stitch will have you wanting to snuggle this hat instead of wear it sometimes.
Make Matching Coffee Bean Crochet Pieces
The bean stitch is easy to crochet, and I have a video tutorial linked below to help you with it if it’s a new stitch for you. After you make this hat, you’ll probably want to keep using the bean stitch - so go ahead and make yourself a matching scarf or mittens, too 😉
Yarn Substitutes for Scarfie Yarn
Ever since I started Seven Days of Scarfie, I’ve been asked a lot about yarn that can be substituted when Scarfie isn’t available or wool is an issue. The good news is that you can substitute almost any worsted weight yarn or light Category 5 yarn for this pattern! Just check your gauge if you decide to swap your yarn. Some that you may want to play with as a similar looking substitution are Lion Brand Ferris Wheel and Red Heart Colorscape. Just be mindful of yarn weight and gauge!

How to Crochet the Baby Bean Stitch
Click this link to view a video that demonstrates how to crochet the baby bean stitch. Please Note: this video demonstrates the 'Baby Bean stitch'...the 'Bean Stitch' has one additional YO/pull up a loop for a total of 6 loops on your hook (as described above). I am sharing this video so that you can see the basic process.
8 sts x 6 rows = 2” square in BLO SC
Finished Size (adult):
- Width = 8.75”
- Height = 10”
- Chain stitches at the beginning of rows/rounds 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 2-54: ch 1, working in BLO, SC across (12). Turn.
When you finish the ribbed band, fold it so that Row 1 and 54 are on top of one another. Working through the back loop of Row 54 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 (54). Attach to first SC of the round with a sl st.
Round 2-15: ch 2, *bean, ch 1, skip 1, repeat from * around (27 bean sts). Attach to the first st of the round with a sl st. TURN
Round 16: ch 1, SC2Tog around (27). Attach to the first st of the round with a sl st.
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 16. Pull tight to cinch the top of the hat closed. Make and attach a pom pom if desired. Weave in all ends
