The Barclay Beanie, a fitted ribbed crochet hat with faux fur pom pom

Are you ready for beanie season? Brace yourself for the fall chill when you wear the Barclay Beanie!

Like Pavlov’s dog, something about seeing that first school bus of the season roll by always gets my mind thinking about cozy fall accessories. Weird, right?? But when two skeins of Traveling Yarn Worsted fell into my hands, I knew it was time to design something to wear while sipping my PSLs, and the Barclay Beanie was born.

It’s confession time: I am a certified yarn snob. I’ve known it for a long time and it’s refreshing to finally admit it 🙂

But seriously, I have a weakness for hand-dyed yarn, soft merino wool, and pretty yarn labels. When I got the chance to partner with Traveling Yarn via LoveCrafts.com, I pounced on it. Within a few days, two skeins of Traveling Yarn Worsted were in my hands and I was in hog heaven.

Run by Sarah Wharton, Traveling Yarn is a collection of artisan hand-dyed yarn inspired by desert landscapes. The colors I landed on for the Barclay Beanie design were Merlot (left) and Hardcore Peach (right). Each skein has unique characteristics. Both have a tonal nature, which I love, but Merlot is a bit more muted and mature while Hardcore Peach is playful and spunky.

After starting this design over about 10 times (ahhh, the joys of pattern design!), I found some inspiration in classic knit accessories. I love the idea of all-over ribbing, but you don’t see it much in crochet. I practiced with some post stitches and the design started to take shape.

Worked from the bottom up, I was able to customize the design and add some gradual shaping at the top. A faux fur pom pom and a leatherette tag later, and the look was complete. The finished Barclay Beanie is fitted with very little slouch and has a massive amount of stretch. While designed for adults, this beanie could easily fit teens and young adults.
