Textured Beanie Hat with Diamond Design

Knitting Patterns, Winter Crafts

This, hot off the press: a gorgeous textured beanie that is oh-so-quick to knit. It’s rich in color and texture, i.e. the best accessory, perfect for Fall weekend adventures.

This cozy beanie is featured in avocado green color. It has a stretchy fit and if you want, you can upturn the ribbed brim. Super cute!

My Design Story

I took this superb yarn for a hat design project with me on vacation to Madrid last week. Only to realise that this 1 skein was not going to be enough for the large, intricate beret I originally had in mind. It quickly become too belaboured.

So I frogged it all and made a new design from scratch.

While I took over a week to work on the original beret idea, this diamond beanie design just ‘roll off’ the press with nothing but pure joy and ease.

I needed this to be a fast project (a I had just little vacation time left), so I created this easy, unique diamond stitch pattern which decreases slightly towards the crown.

It looks grand from top and side with loads of texture and interest.

Best of all, since I opted for simple but impactful features, you will be able to finish this hat in an evening, or two.
