Lilac Cluster Beanie Free Crochet Pattern

 

In today’s post I will be sharing the Lilac Cluster Beanie FREE Crochet Pattern. I am so excited to be sharing this free crochet pattern with you for a number of reasons.  The main one is that I looked at a store bought hat and was able to create a crochet pattern from it!  Another reason is that it is a Beautiful design and a Great Beanie! lol  The last reason is the flower clusters look like Lilacs, which is my ALL time favorite flower.  I just LOVE their smell!

My son found a hat and gave it to me last year.  When it was taken out of storage this past winter I was like “I NEED to copy this pattern!”    I took a real good look at it and wanted to see if I could crochet it because it said on the label “Crocheted.”  Well I finally worked out a pattern and I hope you love it as much as I do!

**I used Lion Brand Mandala Yarn 3 ply light weight yarn or DK weight yarn.  (5.3 oz/590 yds)**

Materials:

US Hook K or 6.5 mm
200-500 yds of 3 ply Light Weight or DK Weight Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry Needle

Gauge:

US K Hook or 6.5 mm
16 fpdc x 12 rows = 4”

Gauge Swatch:

R1:  Chain 10, dc in 4th st from hook and remaining 7 st.  Turn.

Abbreviations:

ch = Chain
sl st = Slip Stitch
mc = Magic Circle
dc = Double Crochet
sp = Space
fpdc = Front Post Double Crochet
fpdc3tog = Front Post Double Crochet 3 Together-Decrease
fpdc6tog = Front Post Double Crochet 6 Together-Decrease

Notes:

ch 2 does NOT count as a stitch
ch 3 counts as a dc
Stitch count is multiples of 6, so if your brim is too tight or too loose try going up or down in hook size before you adjust the stitch count.
Pattern written for: 0-6mth (6-12 mth, 12-24 mth, 2-5 yrs, 5-10 yrs, Teen/Sm Adult, Med Adult, Lg Adult)
The Crown will Increase every other Row as the Sizes increase every other Row.  The Increase will be done every other Row.
24 (36, 48, 60, 72, 84) will be your ending row count after you complete the increases for your size.
This Beanie can be made into a Slouchy Hat.  You can add more Rows during the Shells & Clusters by doing R3-R4 and ending with R3 .  You can also add more Rows to the Brim, that will work too to make a Slouchy Hat.

Special Stitches:

Front Post Double Crochet – Double Crochet going around the Front Post of the DC in the Previous Row.
Cluster Stitch or Front Post Double Crochet 6 Togetherwhen you front post double crochet 6 dc together, you are taking what were six double crochet stitches and turning them into just one front post double crochet stitch or one cluster stitch by using the first 3dc, skip (ch2, sc, ch2) then using the following 3 dc.
