Crochet Pattern by Rich Textures Crochet
Hello and welcome! My name is Sarah of Rich Textures Crochet and I am so excited to be featured as a guest designer here on Underground Crafter.
First off, I would like to say “thank you” to Marie for allowing me to be here with you today.
The pattern that I am bringing to you today is called the Trinity Beanie. It’s named as such for the very simple reason that the hat features one of my new favourite stitches called the trinity stitch. Sometimes the stitch is also called the rocking stitch.
The trinity stitch found in this crochet beanie is a fun stitch to work, comprised primarily of single crochet three together stitches. When this stitch is worked one over top of the other it gives the appearance of a star. It’s a pretty stitch to look at!
The hat body is worked in rounds while the brim of the hat is worked in rows. I love a slip stitch ribbing on my hats as I find that the brim is more snug and holds it shape better. The slip stitches can be a bit tedious to work though, so if you would like, you may work the ribbing using a single crochet stitch or even a half double crochet stitch.
This crochet beanie pattern is made using a super bulky weight 100% wool yarn called Sugar Bush Chill. The yarn is a roving yarn which means that it loosely spun making it super squishy to work with. For a wool this yarn is also very soft! I have worked hats with it before, such as this Winter Chill Beanie and have loved the result each time.
Along with the super bulky weight yarn you are also going to need two crochet hooks for this beanie. You will use an 8mm crochet hook for the brim of your hat and a 10mm crochet hook for the body of the hat. They had is worked from the brim up and, because it is worked in the super bulky weight yarn, it works up quickly.
I hope you enjoy this crochet Trinity Beanie! If you run into difficulty or are more of a visual learner, I invite you to view the free YouTube tutorial that can be found here and embedded in the pattern below. While you are there, I invite you to subscribe!
Once again, thank you so much for stopping by and thank you to Marie for allowing me to meet you!
Until next time, happy crocheting!
