The Everyday Bean Beanie is a simple and fast free crochet pattern that you can make in any color you wish. I used a variegated yarn that was bulky and made it a very masculine-looking beanie.
It was a Saturday afternoon, when I strolled through my local Michael’s store. I was looking for a yarn that would work as a male color and therefore would work for a beanie for my husband. But he is a very picky person when it comes to clothing. He only likes certain colors – earth colors.
So, when I found this new yarn which is called Izaac Mizrahi Craft by Premier Yarns, I knew I had to buy several skeins of them. Thinking about the current sale at that time, I remember getting 3 for the price of 2.
Considering my husband would love that color combination I knew he would wear the beanie that I had in my mind as a new pattern. So as soon as I got home, I started crocheting my imaginary pattern. And, I am absolutely in love with my newest crochet pattern which I call the Everyday Bean Beanie.
The Everyday Bean Beanie features the bean stitch which might seem difficult when looking at the pattern, but is actually very easy to crochet.
I really love the way how the yarn makes the beanie look so special as the color changes determine the look of it. You will not need special stitches to make this beanie stand out.
The yarn itself is bulky, but very light and makes the Everyday Bean Beanie feel very light to wear, but provides lots of warmth due to the bulky yarn.
I used the yarn recently in a different color before for a beanie I call Hubby’s Home Beanie which I absolutely love. You should check it out.
The Everyday Bean Beanie is another one of my Hubby’s favorite beanies that I created, which is why he allowed me to take more pictures of him wearing it even though he neither likes to take pictures nor be online widely visible.
If you have never made a beanie before, this for sure is an easy crochet pattern that comes with a link to a complete tutorial on how to create the perfect beanies. The Everyday Bean Beanie is for sure an beginner pattern that provides a small challenge when it comes to the bean stitch.
I really hope you like this crochet pattern as well as the look of the Everyday Bean Beanie just as much as I do.
