When I was finished making the Bauble Bandana Cowl, I knew I had to make a hat to match. I chose a slouchy style with a slightly loose band. This keeps my curls from going flat when I’m out and about. I love the way the stitch combination looks on this hat! I’ll be sure to throw this one on every day as I head out the door this fall.

I came across the Bead Stitch in my trusty Crochet Stitch Dictionary by Sarah Hazell. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make something with this stitch! I love how it really does look like you’ve strung a bead into your work. The effect is quite stunning when you pair it with a yarn that has a bit of sheen, which is why I chose Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable for this pattern. But, if you prefer a solid colour, Caron Simply Soft will also show off this pattern quite nicely.

Finished Size:

Hat band measures 23”-24”, depending on how tightly you crochet the last 2 rows. 

This hat is meant to fit loosely. If you would like a smaller/tighter hat, you can try going down a hook size. 

Gauge:

There will be instructions to measure your project for gauge at two separate points in the pattern.  

Be sure to check your gauge. It will save you time and heartache. 

Materials:

I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable, which is 100% Acrylic, #4 Worsted weight yarn. 

Any yarn of similar weight would work. 

Approximately 178 yds. 

6mm Hook

5mm Hook

Stitch Markers

Yarn Needle
