Crochet Beanie Roundup! | Freebie Beanie’s by Stardust Gold Crochet

I hope you enjoy these patterns, and keep an eye out next week for a CAL hosted here on my blog for the Fair Isle Slouchy Beanie. This is a pattern I designed last year that I will be releasing for *free* here on the blog and debuting the release with a full blown 3 week crochet along (CAL)! 😍

Fair Isle Snowflakes & Hearts Beanie

Without further ado, here is a round up of all my free beanies! (and a few sets too!)

Country Hearts Chunky Beanie

Country Hearts Chunky Beanie

The Country Hearts Chunky Beanie comes in various sizes, and works up using the crochet stitch called the knit stitch aka waistcoat stitch. I’ve created a full video tutorial on how to create this stitch, along with tips on changing colors too!

Ice Crystals Beanie

The Ice Crystals Beanie is the Country Hearts Beanie close cousin! It’s created using a graph and the same knit stitch, so once you master one, you’re sure to master the other!

Beanie & Scarf Sets

The following are a few of the free sets. I really love a great beanie, but what I love even more is a matching scarf/cowl & beanie/beret set! Hope you do too. πŸ’‹

Maya Classy Cowl & Beret

I think I need to updo some new photos for this one! Bad Tasha! I’ll work on that for sure lol πŸ˜„

The Maya Classy Cowl & Beret are a very classy set πŸ˜‰. Classic stitches, and something for the minimalist. I really love the textures of this set, and the beret comes in various sizes as well.

Winter Blush Scarf & Beret

This set is really one of my favorites!

The Winter Blush Beanie & Scarf is one I love to wear ALL THE TIME. It’s so soft! These work up pretty fast too because the yarn is chunky for the scarf, and the hat comes in various sizes as well, from toddler to adult.

Mandala Infinity Scarf | Free Crochet Pattern & Video Tutorial

Mandala Infinity scarf – REBOOT!!  This is one of my first patterns, so I wanted to go back and make it in a different color and jazz it up!  I hope you like V2. I also realized way too late that there were some mistakes my testers and I missed, so those are fixed and I”m hoping everyone loves this pattern as much as I do. It is comprised of basic stitches, along with a full video tutorial at the bottom of the post.

Mandala yarn is one of my favorites, and this pattern uses a technique called Navajo plying, which is a method used to make a think yarn chunkier. I created a video on how to do this and it is one of the more popular videos on my YouTube channel.

If you ever need pattern support, I started a Facebook group called Stardust Gold Crochet & Friends where you’re welcome to share your patterns (paid or free- get your money on girl, I won’t stop you!) I only ask no spamming, but feel free to ask me *literally* anything. You can join here, hope to see you there!

When you finish your Mandala Infinity Scarf, pretty please share and tab me or use hashtags #StardustGoldCrochet #MandalaInfinityScarf so I can see your awesome work!

As a thank you for being you and supporting my blog – you can always use the coupon code THANKYOU for 20% OFF your next pattern on Ravelry!

A little bit about the yarn…and Navajo Plying

Mandala is a DK (3) weight yarn, but we are going to make it chunky!  The colors are beautiful, so I wanted to use Mandala, but needed it thicker.  I use a method I will teach you that turns a light worsted (3), into a chunky weight yarn (5-6).

Check out the video β€œMake your Thin Yarn Chunky! – or – you scroll down for the full video tutorial.

It’s easy!  The results are amazing, and it opens the door for so many projects and new colors from thin to chunky.

Another fun way to make a thin yarn thicker is to use two skeins and pull one strand from each.  But here, we are using the S-method (Navajo Plying), and three strands or 3 weight yarn.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

The Mandala Infinity scarf is a one size fits all scarf and uses some interesting stitches to create a textured pattern. The difficulty of this pattern would be easy, but leaning more toward intermediate level crocheting because it does incorporate front and back post stitches. It works in continuous rounds with joins.

+ Pattern Notes – Please Read


  • Remember to count your stitches πŸ˜‰.
  • Chains do not count as stitches, unless otherwise noted.
  • The pattern is worked in the round.
  • First st of each round is made in first st, because joins are made into the chains.
  • See tutorial links for help with the more difficult stitches and stitch placement.

Tips:  After working your starting chain, run your finger along the length of the work to make sure there are no twists in the chain when you slip stitch the ends together.  You will be working in the round for this infinity scarf.

Soften it up:  After you finish tying off and weaving in tails, use Suave conditioner, fill a sink with water, submerge the entire scarf and use a lot of conditioner!  Rub it all in.  Then let it sit overnight.  Rinse, and lay it flat to dry, or put it in a pillowcase and dry on low heat.  You can also throw it in the wash with fabric softener.

If you like a PDF pattern, it is available on Ravelry & Etsy for $4.50, links below.

The mandala yarn should be all used up by this row πŸ˜‰, if not, very close to it.  If you find that you’ve used up all the yarn and not finished with the rnd yet, you’re tension May have been a little tight, so I suggest grabbing another cake of the Mandala yarn and using up a bit of that to finish it.

Hydra Spa Set | Happily Hooked Magazine Pattern Premiere | Get a copy!

Hey guys! I’m so excited to announce that my first published pattern is appearing in the September 2019 issue of Happily Hooked Magazine! It’s such an honor to be chosen for this Fall issue, and I feel like dancing. πŸ˜† I’ve been designing for a few years now, but never really knew how to submit patterns and it seems my scattered brained is always just in “go” mode. Submitting patterns takes time, patience, and organization. I have the patience – the organization and time on the other hand 🀣.

The Hydra Spa Set is a design that was inspired by my friend Lily over at Lilinette Crochet. She came up with a beautiful stitch called the X stitch and asked me to do a tutorial for her. I created the tutorial and was inspired by the great texture of the stitch. I also came across some great yarn at Michael’s that was perfect for a bath set.

I really hope you enjoy this pattern and to get a copy, head on over to Happily Hooked and subscribe! They have some great offers with the Pattern Pack or the monthly subscription to Happily Hooked. I am using my affiliate links, so if you do happen to join, I will receive a commission,πŸ’“ which helps me keep this blog alive.

Details about the Pattern Pack Pro πŸ˜€


Pattern Pack Pro offers a single issue (like the one with the Hydra Spa Set!) for $7.99, chock full of awesome, high quality, well-written patterns. You can also opt-in for yearly digitalonly subscription for $39.99. Not bad!

Details about the Happily Hooked Magazine Subscription πŸ˜€


Happily Hooked Magazine offers a single issue for $8.99 on Ravelry, or a yearly digital only for $49.99! They also have another great option for print, which I prefer because I love magazines! The print + digital is $69.99 a year, which is a steal!

Peacock Stitch Tutorial | Beginner Crochet Video Tutorial | Stitch Explorers Series

Hi everyone! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Welcome to Stitch Explorers! Well, Fall is πŸ‚ in the air! almost, lol) πŸ˜€ I had to break out the glittery leaves and pine cones from Michaels to gussy up the photos 😁. This is a fun and simple stitch to learn for beginners too, I hope you enjoy it.

This Peacock Stitch is a beautiful fan stitch comprised of two stitches and a two row repeat! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

This would be beautiful for an openwork scarf or sweater. It works up fast too, despite all the treble (no pun intended) πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚. I’m somewhat of a nerd, and completely okay with that.

For the tutorial I used Scheepjes Stone-Washed DK in color 815.

This is a great stitch because it’s only two stitches, and works up in height very fast. I’d recommend using this for a light blanket, a pillow covering or even a nice textured scarf, cowl, or cardigan.

Kunik Scoodie | Faux Fur-Lined Hooded Scarf with Pockets|Sizes Adult, Teen, Child, Toddler | Free Crochet Pattern Video Tutorial

kunik scoodie

Hello Makers! πŸ€— Ooooh the cozies of the Kunik Scoodie are endless! The kunik Scoodie makes me feel like I’m ready for the runway AND the snow lodge. It dresses up and down easily. You can pair it with jeans and a sweater or dress it up with a sleek outfit for a night out. It is versatile, and functional, with pockets deep enough to carry your phone, wallet, and other goodies! Kunik means Eskimo Kisses!

I’m very excited to be releasing this hooded scarf just in time for the leaves πŸ‚ to start falling, and the crispness of autumn 🍁 is upon us! It’s warm, the fabric is thick and the faux fur adds a nice spark to it. When I first starting working on this pattern, I was excited to work up a scarf with a hood. I often came across them on Pinterest and a magazine was calling for submissions for a hooded scarves, so I got to work creating it.

I am new to submitting patterns to publications and was excited to hear back from them. It did not get accepted,πŸ™ but that is not discouraging to me at all. I felt a tiny pang of “oh well, moving on!” πŸ˜† Then was filled with excitement that I didn’t have to wait around to release it! It was tested (thank you to my wonderful testers πŸ™), and ready to go! The only thing I decided to do that extended its release is to create a full video tutorial for it. Those are a bit time consuming to create, but well worth it.

You can find the full video tutorial at the bottom of the post.

If you have any questions about this pattern, please join my pattern support group Stardust Gold Crochet & Friends here.  πŸ˜„

Kunik Scoodie

I added a few toggle buttons to give it an extra bit of functionality so you can close up the hood to keep your neck warm, and close the pockets up to keep your stuff from falling out too! πŸ’•

A little bit about the yarn…

I used two different yarns to create the Kunik Scoodie. The first is Hometown USA by Lion Brand, which has a wonderful selection of colorways including varigated. The second yarn I used is Go For Faux, also by Lion Brand. Go For Faux has to be one of my favorite yarns because it has such beautiful colors, and I love the look of fur, but definitely not into hurting animals to get it (vegetarian here)! So this yarn is perfect to get that look without hurting anyone πŸ˜€.  Check out all the great colors and see what you can come up with, or use my recommended colors and create a replica of the one I made (which I happen to think is perfect) πŸ˜‰.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

The Kinuk Scoodie uses only a few basic stitches and a couple of special stitches, which makes it a great project for a beginner to jump into something a little more advanced. The construction is very simple and easy to follow too. The scarf and hood are created separately and sewn together.

There are 4 sizes available, the Adult Teen sizes are one in the same. My tester for the teen stressed that she would like the adult size, so I combined the two. There are also versions for a child size and toddler.

Here are some of the versions from my testers! Thanks you guys so much!

Row 1:   Sc 1 in 2nd ch from hook. *dc 1 in next ch**. sc 1 in next ch”. Repeat from * to * to end. Stop repeat at ** – 12 (10, 8) sts.

Row 2:  Ch 1, turn, *sc 1, dc 1* across – 12 (10, 8) sts.

Row 3 – X:   Repeat row two until scarf measures Adult/Teen:  75.5” [191cm], Child:  65.5” [166cm], Toddler:  60.5” [153cm])

Cut, tie off, weave in tails.

Forming the Pockets:

Grab 4 stitch markers.  Lay scarf flat.  Measure 12” (30cm) [10” (25cm), 10” (25cm)] in from each end and place a stitch marker on both sides of scarf.  (when folded up, pocket should measure 6” (15cm) [5.5” (12cm), 5” (12cm)]  (of course, you can customize how deep your pockets will be).

Now we are going to extend the pockets to create a fur border, using the faux fur…

*Using Pomeranian (A2), attach yarn at rightmost stitch of tip of scarf, then:

Row 1:  Ch 1, sc 1 in same as ch 1, sc 1 in ea st across, end last st with new color Baked Alaska (A1) – 12 (10, 8) sc.  (this will be your wrong side (WS), mark with stitch marker)

Row 2:  Ch 2, turn, loosely work 1 hdc in each st across, leaving a long tail – 12 (10, 8) hdc.

Cut all yarns, leaving a 6” tail for sewing*

Follow down to other side of scarf. (wrong side still facing you) and repeat from * to *

Pocket Assembly:

Turn scarf over (RS facing you), fold up pockets, lining up the top of the MC section with the markers (the fur portion will extend past the markers).

Repeat this section on both ends of scarf.

Using a separate length of MC, whip stitch up to the fur, then using the A1 & A2 tails, whip stitch fur section. Turn pockets so right side is facing out.

Tie off, weave in all tails.

Hood:

note:  mark WS with stitch marker

with MC, Ch 52 (44, 40)

Row 1 (WS):  Starting in 3rd ch from hook, *hdc cluster (yo, insert hook in next st, [yo, pull up a loop]) 2 times. Yo, pull through all loops* – repeat from *…* to end of row – 50 (42, 38)

Row 2 (RS):  Ch 1, turn. *sc 1, dc 1* repeat from *…* to end of row – 50 (42, 38)

Repeat row 2, until it measures 6.5” [16cm] ( 5” [12cm], 4.25” [10.8cm]) from row 1 to last completed row.

note:  the number of rows may vary depending on your tension, when you reach the measuremets above, continue working with your MC and complete the following decrease rows.

Decrease rows:

Ch 1, turn, then…

Row 1: *Sc 1, dc 1* – repeat *…* 11 (9, 8) times, then sc 1 in next st, sc2tog (2 times),   dc 1 in next st, repeat *…* 11 (9, 8) times – 48 (40, 36) sts

Row 2:  Ch 1, turn, *sc 1, dc 1* repeat *…* to end of row – 48 (40, 36) sts.

Tie off, leave long tail for sewing hood.

Hood Assembly:

Bring WS’s together, whip stitch the back of the hood from bottom to top.

Fur Border for Hood:

with WS of hood facing you, attach A2 in rightmost st (where starting ch is).

Row 1:  Ch 1, hdc 1 in same st, hdc 1 in each st across, change to A1 at end of last st, turn – 50 (42, 38) sts.

Row 2:  with A1, ch 2, puff 1 in ea st across, tie off, leave a long tail for weaving – 50 (42, 38) sts.

Hood to Scarf Assembly:

Place the scarf on a flat surface with the pocket side (RS) down. Place hood flat, centred with front RS facing you.

Center the hood:  to check center, measure from edge of pocket to edge of hood. Make sure measurement is same on both sides. Adjust as needed.  Using MC, begin sewing MC section of hood to scarf, leaving the fur section alone.

Creating the collar:

We are going to extend the fur border onto the main body of the scarf, then sew the extending border to the hood border.  Begin by laying scarf flat, with inside of hood facing you.  Starting with the right side and using A2, attach yarn in 1st visible stitch on body of scarf, just below fur hood border, where hood attaches to scarf, then…

Row 1:  Ch 1, hdc 1 in same st, hdc 1 in next 3 sts, sc 1 in each of next 4 sts, cut & tie off (see video at bottom of post for help if needed).

Row 2 (is worked on top of Row 1):  Using A1, join in top of first hdc created from Row 1 above, then…

Ch 1, puff 1 in same as join, puff 1 in ea of next 2 stitches, hdc 1 in next st, sc 1 in each of next 3 sts, (working into MC now), sc 1 in ea of next sts until you measure 9” (22.8cm), 7” (17.78cm), 6” (15cm) from starting point to end.

Repeat on other side.

Joining collar to hood border:

Weave in tails on bottom end of collar, then use A1 & A2 tails to join collar to hood, matching up the colors, and closing the gaps.

Weave in all tails.

Toggle Button Placement:

Pockets:

with RS facing you, place toggle horizontally inside pocket – make sure it is centered so it will be in the center of the fur.  Using MC, sew button to scarf.  Repeat on other pocket.

Collar: 

with RS of scarf facing you, on right side of scarf, place bottom toggle vertically, about 1/2” above the end of the bottom of the collar.  Place 2nd & 3rd toggles 2” (20cm) apart above one another.

Congratulations! You’re Finished!

Colours Chunky Scarf |Fringed | Free Crochet Pattern Video Tutorial

Yeeee Haw! πŸ˜ƒ Do you guys know how long this has been sitting around in my “finished and ready to publish pile?” πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ It’s been a whirlwind of a few weeks for sure. As some of you know from my first podcast, I have chronic pain and unexplained issues. I think we finally have an answer! I had a full panel allergy test and found out I am allergic to Saccharomyces. If you don’t know what that is, it is a type of mold used in baking and brewing. Aka, Baker’s Yeast & Brewer’s Yeast. I’m allergic to yeast! 😲 Yikes. Anyway, this new diagnosis has sent my life into a whirlwind of emptying the kitchen and trying to figure out what I can and cannot eat. I’m so happy to finally have a piece of the puzzle solved, and now hopefully the chronic pain will disappear. What a relief! πŸ’— Have you guys heard of this?

Thanks for all the support and love,πŸ’• and I’m so grateful you’re all here with me, crocheting, learning, and making together. Let’s talk about this scarf now :).

The Colours scarf is a chunky scarf that is a one-row repeat – it works up very fast for those of us who love a quick project! A bit of a stash buster if you have some yarn laying around you want to use up. Landscapes yarn is soft and comfy, but you can use any yarn youd like of course!

I named it Colours because, well, it has so many beautiful colors! There are endless opportunities for color combos using the Landscapes Yarns by Lion Brand.

If you have any questions about this pattern, please join my pattern support group Stardust Gold Crochet & Friends here.  πŸ˜„

This scarf is the perfect pairing with denim and looks great against darker clothes too. The colours really pop. I thought about making the fringe pink or purple, but ended up using a white to give a break from all those colours, but I would love πŸ’• to see someone make this with a bright fringe.

A little bit about the yarn…

I used Lion Brand’s Landscapes in the colorways Desert Spring, Meadow, Coral Reef. This yarn is very fuzzy. If you have any type of respiratory issues, I recommend wearing a light mask with it. I have dust allergies, so I tend to wear one when working with a fuzzy yarn. After you finish, I recommend washing it, then taking scissors or a lighter and getting rid of the frays. Despite the fuzzies, I do love this yarn and the beautiful coloways.

A little note about how this pattern is written…

One stitch! This is a one stitch pattern! Aside from the foundation half double crochet row, you will find this one of the easiest patterns youve worked all year!

This pattern is written with one size in mind and is very straight forward. It involves a one-row repeat after the first few rows and finishes off with a half double crochet row.

Daisy Square Tutorial | Crochet Video Tutorial for Beginners | Stitch Explorers Series

Hi everyone! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Welcome to Stitch Explorers! πŸ€—. If you’re new to Stardust Gold Crochet, I do a weekly (sometimes biweekly) crochet stitch written and video tutorial. 🧢. I was calling it Saturday Stitch Explorers, but then life kind of got in the way and I sometimes do it on Sundays or I might skip a week but I try to be consistent.

This daisy square is, once again, my new favorite. I wish I had a 1000 hours to make *all* the crochet patterns right? Feel me? πŸ˜‚ The Daisy Square consists of 4 rounds, and depending on what size hook and yarn you are using, it’s measurements will vary. My sample square measures 4.5″ (11.4 cm), using Scheepjes Stone-Washed DK.

The tutorial for this square is at the end of the post, and it’s a complete stitch through. 😁

Sign up for the Stargazers newsletter to receive notifications of all free patterns and stitch tutorials :).

Complete video tutorial for the Daisy Square is at the bottom of post – for all the visual learners out there.

What can I make with the Daisy Square?

I’m thinking this square would make a wonderful throw pillow! It would also look great as a blanket using a thicker yarn, or even a chunky yarn. Perhaps a boho scarf, or even a cute market bag.
