Textured beanies are SO popular these days, and when I stumbled upon the crisscross puff stitch, I knew I just had to create a hat with this beautiful stitch!
Using a cake of Lion Brand Mandala was the perfect fit to highlight this stitch and bring out the awesome colorways and transitions in the Mandala line. Attach a fur pom pom on the top and you have a gorgeous beanie that will impress!

For additional stitch explanation, visit the stitch tutorial on my blog.
- Chain 1 or 2 at the beginning of each row does NOT count as a stitch (unless otherwise specified).
- For stitch tutorial photos, see photo instructions here.
- Approximate circumference for each size is the measurement that your band should comfortably stretch to (the actual length of your band will be shorter).
- If you need to adjust the length of the band to meet gauge, be sure to do so in multiples of 4. The number of band rows should then also become the number of starting stitches in R1 of the hat body.
