This past week, as I shared my Sunrise Sky Mesh Summer Cowl, I had a crochet friend kindly inform me that the northern half of the continent is under snow. Of course, I think it’s been cold here in Florida lately, too! (It was as chilly as 39 when I woke up last Thursday! Brr!) So, I told her that I would design her a beanie to crochet to keep her warm! This free textured crochet hat pattern is the result of that fun conversation.

I am in love with this texture! Just a simple skipped stitch turns this pattern into a one row, two stitch repeat. The post stitches really add a lot of texture, and those little air pockets will help this hat hold onto warmth very well. (And look great!)
