This simple beanie is a great pattern for beginners or an advanced crochet crafter wanting something simple to make. The trend of color blocking is still very popular in many areas of fashion and home décor from clothes and accessories to pillows, pictures and even dishes. The idea is to choose two or three colors to combine in simple blocked sections or geometric shapes to accent each individual color and also collectively. I needed a simple fall-colored beanie to keep my ears warm and couldn’t find one in our “hat” basket. So, I decided to make one! I know you will enjoy this simple beanie as much as I do. The pattern could easily be worked up in winter or spring colors too! This pattern fits most teen and adult head sizes.
