Houndstooth Crochet Beanie with Pom Pom and ribbed edge by Kristen Stein Designs
This pattern uses basic crochet stitches to crochet a houndstooth beanie with ribbed edge and pom pom using two contrasting yarns: one light and one dark yarn.
The pom pom used in the sample was created with a 2pc pom pom maker, but any pom pom will work if desired.
I used fingering weight yarn, but you can choose to use heavier weight yarns if you like. If you use a thicker weight yarn, you will want to adjust the hook size and gauge accordingly. The pattern is written according to one’s head circumference, so the initial number of stitches will vary depending on the desired size.
Easy to modify to different sizes or yarn weights.
