I don’t know what my favorite thing is about this Slouchy bean Beanie! If it’s the Yarn, the pretty tweed, the color, the stitch…..I love it all!
I have been wanting to incorporate this stitch into a beanie for awhile and finally did. I used the Bean Stitch for the majority of this pattern. If you haven’t ever done the Bean Stitch and want a more in depth, picture tutorial for this stitch alone, then go check out my tutorial for it HERE.
The Yarn –
It’s like a pale ice blue color with all the little bits of tweed. It would be so pretty for winter, especially pictures up against the snow…..so pretty!

- Bean Stitch (BS) –
- Insert Hook into stitch, yarn over pull up a loop, yarn over insert into same stitch, yarn over pull up a loop, yarn over insert into stitch again, yarn over pull up a loop, you should have 6 loops on your hook.

Chain 1 to complete stitch
- You will make the brim first and slip stitch it together to form a circle and then work the beanie up.
- Due to the nature of the bean stitch, it is meant to be worked back and forth, so that means that this beanie is NOT worked in the round. You will turn your work after completing each row.
