Winter Blossom Slouch Crochet Pattern, Options to Make a Regular Beanie or a Slouchy Included

Puff Stitch Beanie Crochet Pattern

Puff Stitch Slouchy Beanie Crochet Pattern



This is another crochet beanie pattern in my Puff Stitch series. I have a couple more lined up and maybe I will hold on until next winter to publish them. Who can believe Spring is almost here? Time to start thinking about my Spring collection. I am finding it so hard though, I am not over designing winter hats yet, sigh! 

Seeing the amazing response I got when I posted this hat on FB and Instagram, I can already sense that this design will be much loved by all of you. Thank you so much to Tina for suggesting a beautiful name for this gorgeous hat. 

The stitch used for this hat is far easier to work and has much more drape than a stiff jasmine stitch. I use Lionbrand Wool Ease for most of the hats. I love the drape and the stitch definition of that yarn. The peach hat was made using Caron Simply soft. 

* The pattern is written in Standard American terms.

* Pattern includes option for a beanie and a slouch.

* The pattern includes hats in 4 sizes, 6-12 months, 1-4 years, 4-10 years, Pre-teen to Woman

* The pattern uses Hooks J(6 mm) and I( 5.5 mm).

*Pattern uses Worsted weight yarn (size 4). I used Lionbrand Wool Ease for gauge.

Dishcloth or Washcloth Crochet Pattern, Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Dishcloth or Washcloth Pattern

Dishcloth crochet pattern

Dishcloths or washcloths are very quick and easy to crochet. Making a few of them could be a great way to practice your stitches. This crochet pattern uses a simple repeat to give you a great texture. Make a few to match your kitchen decor and you have something that looks good and is useful too. Use them to wash your dishes or clean your kitchen surfaces. Dishcloths should always be made using 100% cotton yarn. I used Lily Sugar n Cream for the samples. The ones I made are an 8-inch square. You can make them bigger if you like. I prefer keeping mine small as they are easy to wash that way. 


1. Worsted weight cotton yarn. Lily sugar n cream in colors soft Ecru, Hot Blue and Yellow were used for the samples.
2. Hook H(5 mm)
3. Yarn needle for weaving in the ends
