Free Pattern | CROCHET BEANIE with Cross-Stitch Embellishment

Yeah, that’s a Sherlock Holmes silhouette! I’m in love!

I love cross-stitching and I love crocheting, and recently I’ve been playing around with cross-stitch ON crochet. Cross-stitching on crochet is a great medium for larger projects such as pillows and blankets, and is fantastic for personalization. I am going to be providing some free patterns here on the blog for this particular art form, because I just need to spread the love, lol.

The first CS on crochet project that I did was a bookmark, because I just wanted to see how it would work, and I actually really love the way it came out:

After that, I wanted to make something that I could wear, so I took the traditional beanie and worked out what size grid would fit on it, and just went to town. I made two different hats, but it was so hard to choose a grid, so I have 4 grids available below, if you’d like to personalize your own beanie.

If you are interested in learning how to cross-stitch on crochet fabric, check out the quick tutorial I made.

Without further ado, here is the first pattern:

Some grids that will fit on this beanie are below. Basically any grid that is about 20 sts by 20 sts will work well. If you wanted to do some sort of motif, you have about 20 sts high and 70 sts long to work with.
