The Snowdrop Beanie Crochet Pattern starts out with a simple double crochet. Then it uses a combination of half double crochet and the Pebble Stitch to create the pretty textured brim.
This hat is the 8th pattern in the Crochet Along for a Cause. We are making 1 hat per week to donate to a cancer center, school, or homeless shelter all summer long. There’s always time to join! You can find all the details and hat patterns HERE.

Breann, the pattern name is missing from the pdf. I just wanted to let you know in case you needed to update it. Thanks for another amazingly beautiful pattern and for supporting a cause that’s close to my heart.
I really like when you add a video with the patterns. Will you be doing that again? It would definitely help with those first learning the stiches. Thank you so much for what you do and for this CAL. I truly appreciate it all.
I do not know how to do a puff stitch. Am enjoying the challenge and giving part.
Love the pattern, thank you so much for sharing
did you do a video on how to do the puff stitch? if so, where could I find it?
No I don’t
Look on you tube
The Snowdrop Beanie is my favourite so far, so feminine.
Learned Puff stitch in previous CAL, I started.
Found another bag with grey and white yarn that was a former knitter’s stash, given to me. So, I’ll be busy for awhile.
Anyone ever tell you, that your patterns are excellently written? Very easy to follow. A friend can’t read patterns, but, my sister and I are blessed with the ability. So thank you!
Sorry, so wordy.
Aw, thank you SO much!! 🙂
Hi Breann, I found your written patterns over the weekend and I have to say I love them. You wrote them up perfectly. I have tried to make the snowdrop beanie, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do the puff stitch using the third loop. Thanks.
Hi! Thank you! Definitely keep the stitch loose when making a puff stitch 🙂
I followed the pattern carefully and find that when you turn each row the pattern does not look like the picture. I understand what happens when you go into the third stitch of a half double crochet. You get what looks like a chain around the hat in between rows. Don’t get it!
I had same problem , so I pulled it out and restitched, I did two half crochets then puff stitch .Turned out pretty.
I just connected with you and i love this pattern?
Thank you!! 🙂
Id like to make this for my 8 month old. How can i adjust the pattern to fit?
I have a size chart in this post 🙂 https://www.hookedonhomemadehappiness.com/how-to-crochet-a-basic-beanie-for-beginners/
Are we starting each double crochet in the same stitch as the join? I understand the chain 2 does not count as a stitch, when starting each round, am I starting the first double crochet in the same space as the slip stitch?
