Autumn weather is fully here and although I’m sad to see summer go, I am loving the fall colours and I’m starting to settle into all things cozy and crochet such as this beanie. The great thing about this beanie pattern is that it’s not quite a beanie; it has a bit of a slouch to it, so I decided to call this one Easy Not so Beanie Crochet Beanie! It’s a mouthful but it fits. Made with chunky yarn, it hooks up in no time as it’s worked with the round with only two stitches. Perfect project for those just learning how to work in the round.
I love the fit of this and I chose a colour that will go with everything, a lovely slate grey. If you have been following my blog for a while now, you know that I adore colour, but this time around I wanted something neutral. The fit of this has a bit of a slouch to it, so play with it until you like the look of this not so beanie beanie. This hat will keep the wind from chilling you and looks great paired with black jackets or even brightly coloured coats. And you hook this up in an afternoon!

This pattern was fun to work up, and hopefully one you enjoy crocheting. It’ll certainly away the crisp fall air from making you shiver. I have many projects waiting to make their way onto the blog as I’ve been doing more crocheting than crochet blogging of late. You’ll see all of them in due time! They are all cozy and just right for the colder days ahead. You can’t go wrong with warm wooly pieces to snuggle into on a bright cold winter day, so I’m making tons of them right now.
