Very Berry Beanie

If you’re a Scarfie yarn lover like I, you’ll love this pattern berry much! The Very Berry Beanie is a simple crochet pattern in 5 sizes: toddler, child, teen, adult and adult large. It’s completely made with single crochet stitches and a fun stitch called the berry stitch. I’ve purposely used the color ‘Cranberry/Black’ because it fits the design, but this hat will look great in any color! Scroll down for my free berry stitch beanie pattern including step by step video tutorial.

About the berry stitch beanie

This beanie is made with the berry crochet stitch, hence the name ‘very berry beanie’. The berry stitch looks very similar to the popcorn stitch, but is much easier and faster to make. It’s made by starting a normal sc, but before finishing the last step, you chain 3. Then you finish the sc like you normally would. Very simple, but with a beautiful outcome!

About the pattern

We’ll start working on the brim with single crochet stitches worked in the back loops only. Then, we’ll continue working on the body part in continuous rounds. It’s a simple 4-row pattern repeat with single crochet stitches alternating berry stitches. Finally, we’ll close the top with a darning needle and optionally add a pom pom. This berry stitch beanie is available in 5 sizes for the entire family and can easily be adjusted for any head circumference.

About the yarn

For this beanie I’ve used one ball of Lionbrand Scarfie. Scarfie is a soft wool blend yarn with unique self-striping ombré effect. It beautifully shades from one color to the next. It works up fast and is perfect for beanies, garments, afghans.. I’ve used the color ‘Cranberry Black‘ on purpose because this beanie features the berry stitch.

Repeat row 2 until row 23 (27, 31, 35, 39). Brim should measure 12 (14, 16 18, 20)”. Fold the brim in half (lengthways) and join both ends together with 3 (4, 5, 5, 5) sl st. Do not fasten off, we’ll continue with the body of the beanie.

BEANIE

The first round of the body is worked across the edge of the ribbing band. From now on, we’ll work in continuous rounds.

Round 1:
Ch 1 (doesn’t count as a stitch), 1 sc in each row of the band <24 (28, 32, 36, 40)>

Round 2:
*1 berry in next st, 1 sc in next 3 st* repeat around <24 (28, 32, 36, 40)>

Repeat round 2 – 5 consecutively until round 11 (13, 15, 17, 19).

Closing the top

Whip stitch (place approx. one stitch for each row) along the top edge of your beanie. Pull the top of your hat as tight as possible to close the hole. Secure by adding a few extra stitches across the cinched top till it’s fully closed. Weave in your ends.

Pom pom (optional)

Optionally you can add a pom pom. I’ve used a Clover pom pom maker, see video here.
