The Moss Beanie Crochet pattern is an easy one to work featuring the beautiful and textured pistachio stitch.
I love the Pistachio crochet stitch! It has a similar, but smaller texture, to the 3D Shell Stitch. The texture in both of these stitches creates a 3D effect, is easy to work as a one row repeat, solid and the same on both sides.
The Moss Beanie crochet pattern is worked from the brim up. The texture in the hat is continuous to the crown where you will simply sew the top of the hat closed. I will tell you and show you how in the free video tutorial down below.
I have worked this crochet hat in a worsted weight acrylic yarn. You will see it worked here in the Heartland yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. The colour shown is Joshua Tree. This yarn is so soft! It is thick for a worsted weight yarn making this crochet hat super cozy.
Along with the yarn you will need a 5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below you will see me using a Clover Soft Touch Hook.
The crochet pattern for the Moss Beanie will be written in full below and is free to follow here on my website. If you wish to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free copy, you may do so through my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:

Row 2: Working in the blo, sl st in each st across. Ch 1, turn. (9 sl sts)
Continue to repeat row 2 until work from the beginning measures approximately 16-17 inches.
Do not fasten off, but fold brim of hat so that two shorter ends meet. Now working through both thicknesses, sl st across working through the blo on each side. Do not fasten off. Turn work right side out (so that the right side is facing you and the slip stitch seam is on the inside).
Now working around the edge of the brim, continue working in rounds as follows:
