One of my favorite designs is called the Flower Cluster Beanie or Lilac Beanie.  I am so Excited to be sharing this design with you and to be doing another CAL (Crochet A Long) with one of my designs.  The Crochet A Long will be held inside of our Facebook Group Crochet A Long with Us here.  The CAL will start January 2, 2020 and will run until January 5, 2020.  Be sure to grab you an Ad-Free PDF version here and join me and over 5000 members in doing my Flower Cluster Beanie!

I am so excited to be sharing this 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!

Flower Cluster (Lilac) Beanie

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!

  • 24 will be your ending row count after you complete the increases for your size.
  • This Beanie can be made into a Slouchy Hat by using 4 ply worsted weight instead of 3 ply.  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.
