Puff Stitch Beanie

puff stitch beanie crochet pattern

If you love the look of Puff stitches as much as I do, you’ll love this beanie. This is the first crochet project that I have designed using this beautiful stitch and I will definitely be using it again in the future. Not only are puff stitches fun to make, they look beautiful! And the Premier Puzzle Yarn in Acrostic that I used is absolutely gorgeous!

Crochet hook: J 6 mm
Yarn: Bulky  (Premier Puzzle Yarn in Acrostic)

The brim is worked flat in rows and is joined in the round at the end.

Row 1: chain 7, sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in each of the 5 rem chs, turn [6]

You are working in the back loops (BL) only for rows 2-64

Rows 2- 64: ch 1, sc in each st in the BL, turn [6]

Join your brim in the round and sc the two ends together. Do not fasten off.

I apologize for the photo quality. I was working in the car on the way to Disney. 

Flip your brim inside out so that your seam ends up on the inside/wrong side. You will have to pull your skein of working yarn through the middle so that it doesn’t end up on the wrong side of your work.

Rnd 1: Chain 2 and make a puff stitch in every other row of the brim (see Puff Stitch photo tutorial above). As you can see in the photo, I made my puff stitches in the raised rows of the brim. Since there are 64 rows, you should end up with 32 puff stitches. [32]

Rnds 2- 15: Continue working in the round (do not join). Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round. Make one puff stitch in each ch-1 space from the previous rnd. [32]

Rnd 16: Make puff stitch decreases for the entire round. (see Puff Stitch decrease photo tutorial above). [16]

Rnd 17: Make puff stitch decreases for the entire round. [8]

Rnd 18: Make puff stitch decreases for the entire round. [4]

Use a tapestry needle to sew the remaining stitches together and fasten off. Weave in all of your ends.

Tool: extra large pom pom maker
Yarn: Red Heart Fur Yarn

Firmly and evenly wind your Red Heart Fur Yarn around each set of arches. After the first set of arches, close them and then wind your yarn around the second set. 

Photos are from my Santa Hat pattern.

Cut the yarn between each set of arches.

Use a scrap piece of yarn (I don’t recommend using fur yarn for this) to tie the pom pom in place. I recommend you double/triple knot it.

Carefully open the arches.

Use a hot glue gun to place a dab of glue in the center of the pom pom. This will help prevent it from unraveling.

Fluff your pom pom and trim any long ends.

Use a tapestry needle to attach your pom pom to the top of your hat.
