The Beach Point Beanie is an easy crochet pattern that is named after one of my most favourite spots on Prince Edward Island, Canada.
The east end of Prince Edward Island has long been home to some of my favourite places on the Island. When my family and I head to the island for holidays, we always find ourselves wandering the eastern shores, combing the sand for sea life and sea glass and visiting our favourite shops (including some of my favourite yarn shops).
This end of the island has a slower pace to it and a natural beauty. It is home to one of our favourite beaches in Beach Point Harbour. It’s this area that has inspired the name for the Beach Point Beanie!

The Beach Point Beanie is a light weight crochet beanie that is snug fitting. It features a beautiful solid shell stitch. I have worked it without a pompom on top, however you may add one if you choose.
This crochet beanie is worked in a favourite locally sourced, hand dyed yarn called Selkirk Worsted by Fleece and Harmony. It is a beautiful yarn to work with. It’s a 100% wool that is super soft and has lots of bounce! The beanie only require one skein of yarn and Fleece and Harmony have many colours to choose from. The colour shown is called November Sky!
I have designed other crochet patterns using yarn by Fleece and Harmony such as the Wildflowers Shawl Crochet Pattern and the Cozy Cottage Socks Crochet Pattern .
Along with the yarn you will need a 5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below you will see me working with a Birchwood Crochet Hook by Rowan Yarns.
