How to Crochet a Fair Isle Beanie (7 Part Crochet Tutorial)

Hello Makers! 🤗 It’s reboot season! While many of my new designs are in testing, I’ll be rummaging through some of the most popular patterns from last year. The Fair Isle Crochet Beanie is one of them!

I am slowly releasing them as free patterns, along with crochet tutorials to accompany them.

Fair Isle Crochet Beanie

I’m soooo excited about this! I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time now, but you know how life does what it does. 🙃

A while back, I created a crochet along (CAL) group on Facebook, and invited some wonderful designers to join in.

The Fair Isle Snowflakes & Hearts Beanie (mouthful I know!) was my very first CAL! Because we had so many designers in the group, my next scheduled CAL is not for another month or so.

Fair Isle Crochet Beanie Pattern Details

If you are landing here for the first time the CAL is over, but I’ve compiled all the posts on one page.

Bookmark it and you can come back anytime you’d like :). – OR – you can click the subjects below, they will be updated as we work through all the weeks.

Pattern Support

Please leave any questions in the comments below or you can join my pattern support group, but I’d prefer we keep the comments on the blog. Stardust Gold Crochet & Friends 😄

After this, we will work the companion scarf CAL, this one is a doooozy, and it may take some time, but well worth the effort for sure.

I really love the Fair Isle ❄ technique using crochet. It creates such a beautiful finished piece and also provides so much opportunity for using graphing programs to create any design you’d like!
