The Aeipathy Beanie is a crochet hat pattern that combines two of my favourite stitches: Bobble Stitch and Camel Stitch. I also love the colour purple. So when it was time to come up with a name, The Aeipathy Beanie seemed appropriate since Aeipathy means “a continued passion” and I definitely have a continued passion for textured stitches and crochet in general.

To make this hat, I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn in Hot Springs which is a size 4 aran weight yarn. Some great yarns that you could use as substitute for the Heartland yarn are: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, Caron One Pound and Red Heart With Love yarn. Ultimately, as long as you match gauge, you can use another medium weight, size 4 yarn that isn’t in the list suggested above.

I like to top my crochet hats with a faux fur pompom but that step is optional. If you want to take a hand at making your own DIY faux fur pom pom, this tutorial from Heart Hook Home is really helpful. I’ve used the same process described in the tutorial to make my own pom poms with success. However, time is often limited so I generally use THESE pompoms from Amazon.

To make this crochet hat, you’ll need to know how to crochet in the third loop of a stitch (aka camel stitch), single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and how to make a magic circle.

Size: One Size – Adult
Finished size: Approximately 8.5 inches tall x 10 inches wide.

Gauge: 17 HDC sts across x 12 rows = 4” square

NOTES:

– On the bobble stitch rows, the hat is worked with the wrong side facing you so that the bobble stitches will push out to the right side of the work.
– Join indicates that you should join the last stitch of the round to the top of the first stitch of the round with a slip stitch.
– CH 2 at the beginning of DC rounds counts as a stitch.

Special Stitches:

Bobble Stitch – The Bobble Stitch is essentially a Double Crochet five together cluster (DC5TOG).  To complete it: Yarn over (YO) and insert hook into indicated stitch.  YO and draw up a loop.  YO and pull through two loops on your hook. (Two loops remaining on hook). (YO and insert hook back into the same stitch, YO and pull up a loop.  YO and pull through two loops on your hook).  Repeat instructions in brackets until you have 6 loops on your hook.  YO and pull through all 6 loops on your hook.
