The Black Cherry beanie is the second pattern in the Black Cherry set! Like the matching ear warmer, this pattern features lots of texture.
Welcome to Week Two, Day Two of the Midwinter Crochet Along! I hope you have enjoyed the patterns so far! We have reached the half way point with only four patterns remaining after this one. I have been enjoying seeing your posts of your finished ear warmers, hats and cowls on Facebook and Instagram.

This easy crochet beanie is worked from the bottom up. For the brim, instead of working a traditional ribbing, I have worked some rounds of half double crochet in the third loop. If you are not sure where the third loop is, you can learn all about it in the video tutorial below.
Along with the rounds of half double crochet stitches, you will notice some beautiful and big bobble stitches. I love working the bobble stitch and they create such a fun pop of texture in this pattern.
The pattern will be written out in full below here on my blog for free, however if you would like to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you may do so from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy the Glacier Beanie and look forward to seeing you on Friday when the Black Cherry Cowl pattern will be released! Until then, happy crocheting!
