If you have ever peeked in my shop, you will know that I love a big, bold texture. The Goody Gumdrop Beanie is no exception! There are a few things I want to point out about this beanie:

  • It can be made into a standard closed beanie OR a messy bun hat.
  • It is reversible!! I was drawn to this stitch because it has such a beautiful texture on both the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ side! Using my directions for a removable pom-pom, you can reverse your hat as you please and still rock your pom-pom!
  • I have included 2 band options - a standard short band and a foldable (reversible) band.
  • You can create your hat using multiple colors of your choosing, a solid color or a variegated yarn to save you from having to weave in all those ends!

This pattern is written in adult sizing, with info on how to modify your size.

For this project, you will need a few things:
• Yarn: Approx. 325 -375 yds of your yarn of choice.
Shown in:
- Caron Simply Soft in Bone, Red Heart Fashion Soft in Lavender, Bernat Satin in Aqua, Caron Simply Soft in Sunshine, Bernat Satin in Soft Red & Caron Simply Soft in Dark Country Blue; Caron Simply Soft Off-White
• Hook: I/5.50mm hook (if you crochet loose, you may want to downsize your hook to 4.5mm or 5mm if it is working up too big)
• Pom-Pom Maker (if desired) – Clover brand #65 is what I used
• Button(s) to add to the brim and a large, flat button (1-1/4”) if you’d like to make a removable pom-pom.
• Darning Needle (to weave in ends)

I am a tight crocheter, so I have included tips and instructions on how to modify your hat size, as well as a chart to guide you when it comes to average head sizes.

As always, you are free to sell and gift your finished product as much as you’d like, but please do not copy, rewrite, or resell my pattern.
