The Glacier Beanie Crochet Pattern is an easy pattern and so, so cozy!
Today we continue through week one of our Mid Winter Crochet Along! Welcome! If this is your first time hearing about the Midwinter Crochet Along, I encourage you to check out all of the details here: The Midwinter Crochet Along.
On Monday we learned how to make the Glacier Ear Warmer, today we will learn how to crochet the Glacier Beanie! This is the second pattern of three in the Glacier Set.

Like the Glacier Ear Warmer, this hat design is worked in the herringbone stitch. It is worked from the brim up, is snug fitting, and I will give instruction about stitch multiples under the pattern notes below should you wish to change the size of your beanie. I think it looks so cozy and I can’t wait to see what colours you choose!
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 Glacier Cowl pattern will be released! Until then, happy crocheting!

- Pattern is written in American English terms.
- Pattern is worked in rounds.
- Turn at the end of each round UNLESS stated otherwise
- Ch 1 at the beginning does not count as a stitch.
- Weave in ends as needed.
- To change the size of your beanie, simply work the foundation chain to the desired circumference. No particular stitch multiple is needed. If you like to have even decreases for the crown, I do recommend shortening or lengthening the chain in multiples of 6.
