The Danielle Beanie is a very cozy, fun, yet sophisticated looking beanie with lots of texture.
Using Lion Brand Wool Ease Worsted weight yarn this crochets up very quickly, and has many gorgeous colour options.
Love all this texture but afraid it might be too hard if you are new to crocheting? This hat is crocheted as a rectangle, working the pattern and the ribbing at the same time. It is then seamed into a circle, and finished by cinching in the top.
Here is a video showing how to make the

In this pattern there is a Puff Stitch which is made using 3 hdc.
To make this stitch you will:
Yarn over and insert the hook into the stitch where you are creating your puff stitch. Yarn over and draw through. There will be three loops on the hook.
Yarn over, insert your hook into the same stitch as the first step. Yarn over and draw through. There will be 5 loops on your hook now.
Yarn over, insert your hook into the same stitch a third time. Yarn over and draw through. There will now be 7 loops on the hook for a 3 hdc puff stitch. Yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook.

Fasten off, leaving a long enough tail for seaming
Want to make it in a different size?
Once you have finished off the Rectangle Panel you will join the two short ends together. Folding it in half with the Right Sides together, use a mattress stitch all the way along the side.
This will create a tube. Once finished the mattress stitch fasten off and flip the tube right side out.
Using the remainder of the tail, loop through the outside of the stitches along the top of the hat. Once you have completely gone around the circle cinch in and tie off.
Attach your pom pom and tag if desired. Fold up the brim to your liking.
