Kahlua Crochet Beanie Pattern Free

Sharing is caring!

Crochet cables hats are so much fun, and I'm confident you will enjoy working with post stitches on the Kahlua Crochet Beanie Pattern. One evening after a long day, I made myself a cup of tea and took some time to myself. I may have treated myself to a drop of Kahlua.

We all feel burnt out at times between the to-do lists, cooking, cleaning, and laundry. It's important to take time for ourselves. Which is how the Kahlua Crochet Beanie came about. I decided it was time for me to make something for myself. I had made so many Christmas gifts for others and I enjoyed doing so, however, I also learned this craft for myself. Not only is crochet good for the soul, but for feeling accomplished and to wear something that was created by your own hands.

Crochet For Yourself

The Kahlua Crochet Beanie is an experienced pattern with split stitches (aka the mattress stitch) and a series of front post stitches to create a cable that can be worn down the front or on the side of the head, whichever you prefer. But most important, enjoy the process of creating.

Kahlua Crochet Beanie Notes:

-Ch 1 at beginning of round does not count as stitch

-This pattern works up best with a soft/non-stiff yarn

-Join to the center of split stitch for each round until brim.

-Do not pull Magic Circle (Ring) closed tight until first two rounds are complete.

-Keep stitches loose and go up a hook size on the first few rounds if needed. The first few rounds will be the most challenging due to increasing. It gets easier as it goes. If you crochet tight, go up a hook size.

Special Stitch:

Split Stitch (aka mattress stitch): Spit stitch is worked as a single crochet with one difference. Instead of inserting your hook under the top two loops like a normal sc stitch, you will insert your hook between the “v” of the stitch (as shown in the photo to the right) This gives the Split Stitch that ‘knit look’.

Kahlua Crochet Beanie Pattern Finishing & Pompom

Finally, fasten off your yarn and weave in any ends. I love a hat with a fun pompom detail and making my own pompom saves money for sure. And trust me, it's not very hard and you can do it as well. Because I also love visuals, please watch the video below or read more HERE.
