A new day, a brand new unique crochet hat pattern!
It’s no secret I love to crochet hats. They’re quick to make, portable and usually, only one skein of yarn is needed. Plus it’s cold where I live and my hair is usually a not mess.
The Arcadia Beanie Details
This fun hat uses the aligned cluster stitch we used in block 15 of our 2019 Stash Busting CAL. From the moment I made this square I knew I needed to make a hat out of this stitch.
The Arcadia Beanie is worked from the bottom up using worsted weight yarn, starting with a nice stretchy ribbed band. Then we move on to the cluster stitch portion. The cluster rounds are separated by rounds of alternating single crochets and chains. The clusters are worked in the chain spaces from the previous round. This makes the clusters look like they are sitting on top of each other as opposed to offset.
I designed this beanie to be a little more fitted but if you want it slouchy just add more rounds.
At the top, there are a couple of decrease rounds and then the opening is cinched closed. I topped my hat with a faux fur pom. This pom was a goodie we featured in our knit and crochet subscription box last year.
You can make a faux fur pom easily yourself or you can purchase some premade ones.
This hat pattern also includes 3 sizes! Preschooler, child and adult.
I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn in the color Yellowstone. You need less than a skein for this hat. Heartland is a worsted weight super soft acrylic yarn that comes in some gorgeous colors. Their colors are all named after and inspired by the National Parks in the US. Each skein has 250 yards. More than plenty for a hat or a pair of mittens.
Lion Brand Jeans, Basic Stitch or Touch of Alpaca would make fantastic substitutes if you don’t have any Heartland.
