Rainy Spring Beanie: Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern



Hello! It's finally spring here, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and we are getting tons of spring rain. The weather has warmed up during the day, but I still love wearing a good comfy beanie in the mornings when I take my kiddo to school. The Rainy Spring Beanie is cozy, plus it has sweet little details of spring. Scroll down for the free pattern or to purchase the pdf for printing and offline purposes.

I designed the Rainy Spring Beanie in 2017 and it was released in Happily Hooked Magazine's May 2017 issue and I am still thrilled that it was the cover photo! I love tunisian crochet and I had a lot of fun designing this cute beanie. I have had it as a download only pattern but now, today I am releasing it on here too!



The Rainy Spring Beanie has a stretchy, ribbed brim and is decorated with raindrops and flowers. This hat is perfect for early spring mornings or evenings and rainy spring days.

Notes  

This pattern is worked flat with the right side of the work facing.

At the beginning of each row, the first stitch is on the hook and counts as a tunisian knit stitch.

Work into the horizontal bumps at the back of the foundation chain for the 1st row.

Forward pass is worked right to left and the return pass is worked left to right.

Work color changes during both the forward pass and the return pass.

How To Color Change With Tunisian

How To Do The Mattress Seam

Cut a new piece of yarn the same color as the main color, long enough to seam the back of the hat. Use the mattress stitch to seam up the back of the hat.

Using a darning needle, thread the yarn through the bottom corner of the hat and then thread the yarn through the opposite bottom corner leaving the yarn loose. Switching back to the other side, pull the end row of stitches away to reveal a horizontal bar next to the first stitch. Thread the yarn through the horizontal bar loosely. On the opposite side, pull the end row of stitches away to reveal a horizontal bar next to the stitch and thread the yarn through it loosely. Keep repeating, back and forth, until you reach the top of the hat. Pick up both ends of the yarn and lightly pull on the ends until the seam closes up. Weave in the ends.
