Is it still chilly where you live?
We still have cold mornings here in the mountain town I live in and a chunky beanie is a perfect solution for my frosty ears.
My newest forever free pattern is out now and comes with a free video tutorial. Keep reading to find out how to access it.

The Stripey Knit Look Crochet Beanie was a fun project to make. I used up some Caron Colorama O’go yarn that I had purchased to review on my channel. If you haven’t seen what O’go is all about, check out my review video here.
The yarn comes with five different shades in each “O” that you can get creative with. I moved the colors around a bit from how they originally came to suit the stripes that I wanted. You’ll only need one O’go to make the whole beanie.
A bonus in my new video tutorial that comes with this pattern is that I give an updated review on the O’go after actually making a project with it. You’ll definitely want to check that out if you’re curious how it actually worked out for me.
The pattern uses two different hook sizes. A 6.5 mm [US-K] for the brim and an 8 mm [US-L] for the body. I used my new favorite larger hooks made by Prym for both. I’ve got a video review for those as well if you’ve never heard of Prym. You can check that out here.
The beanie itself is made for a 20″ head circumference, but the ribbed brim can easily accommodate a couple more inches. Plus, I’ve included instructions in the video tutorial on how to adjust the size for any noggin.
Lastly, I used a Clover Pom-Pom maker (video tutorials on how to do that here) to make the multi-colored pom-pom from my leftover scraps of yarn. You can go sans pom-pom, but I like the finishing touch it gives.
I hope you enjoy this pattern and would love to see what you make with it. Be sure to tag me on Insta or Facebook with @knitandcrocheteverafter, I love seeing what you guys come up with!
