I’m so excited to be sharing with you my latest design: The Squishtastic Beaniel!! The name pretty much sums up the texture from this beanie – it’s so squishtastic!

It’s crocheted using the Ladders stitch with Lion Brand’s “Heartland” yarn and it’s oh-so-squishy! This free crochet pattern uses only one skein of the Lion Brand “Heartland” yarn and the pom pom is optional. The crown is worked with half double crochet and the body uses the Ladders stitch with a one-row repeat. This is my go-to pattern whenever I want a hat or a quick gift to make. The single crochet ribbing makes for a wonderfully elastic ribbing. To download a FREE hat sizing template, please visit this link.
