You are now viewing the Jasmine Stitch Beanie by guest designer Amelia Makes.
Today’s crochet beanie pattern is something I am so excited to share with you. The Jasmine Beanie is a project that is both striking and very practical. The main technique in this hat makes it look like many flowers or stars worked together in an interlocking pattern.
My name is Amelia, and I am the creator and designer behind Amelia Makes. This beanie is a great example of how I love to share crochet ever since learning it at a young age. My goal is to help others learn and enjoy crochet and provide beautiful projects that can be made for ourselves, our homes, and those we love best. It is always fascinating to me to try new stitches and then create projects that highlight those new techniques. Classic, interesting designs that can be explained simply(even if they seem complicated at first) are often what I gravitate towards.
The beanie body in this design is made from a very standard acrylic yarn in 100% acrylic. In fact, I already had this yarn in both black and the trendy mustard yellow sitting in my stash from other projects. Since this is a very easy weight to find and the design can be used in any color combination you want, the only real consideration is yarn texture.
It’s rather important for the Jasmine Stitch beanie to use yarn that has a smooth hand and will not easily snag or split. Having a yarn that glides easily will make this stitch, and this whole project, easier to execute. As a bonus, using smooth yarn(s) will also create extra stitch definition and help with finishing off the beanie along the brim with ribbing.
And while you can optionally use any kind of pom-pom to finish of this beanie, I thoroughly enjoyed using Lion Brand’s Go for Faux yarn to crochet my own faux fur pom. This yarn seriously impressed me with it’s plush, high-quality feel, and the fact that it completely hides the crochet stitches makes it perfect for poms like this. For my design, I picked the color “Black Panther”.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE JASMINE STITCH BEANIE
The Jasmine Stitch Beanie is not only striking, it is extra useful as a cold-weather hat. The Jasmine Stitch used here makes a very thick piece, creating an extra-warm accessory. This hat is also forgiving in fit because of how stretchy the stitch is, but the ribbing at the bottom ends up making it a bit more snug.
As you’ll see below, this design is actually incredibly simple in it’s construction. The Jasmine Stitch itself can be intimidating, but doesn’t have to be. If you’d like, you can check out my own tutorial for this stitch, and you’ll also find directions for the Jasmine Stitch within the pattern download.
One last quality of this beanie is that it is a bit on the slouchy side. The body is a bit long but can easily be made shorter if you want. Either way, it will make a very cozy addition to your fall and winter wardrobe.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.
THE JASMINE STITCH BEANIE – THE FREE CROCHET PATTERN
This link will take you right to the free download for this pattern. Enjoy!
ABOUT THE PATTERN:
The Jasmine Beanie is meant to fit most juniors and adults. Made with the same number of rows as mine, it will turn out a bit slouchy.
For a tighter fit or to fit older children, the number of rows may be decreased. Once you are familiar with the Jasmine Stitch itself, it would not be too difficult to go back and adjust the number of stitches in each row for a very custom fit. The most important thing to note is the size of the puffs in your work. Making your puffs shorter or longer than mine will make a BIG difference in how your own beanie turns out!
The Jasmine Stitch Beanie can be made with or without a pom-pom, and even with or without ribbing. If you would like to crochet this design with ribbing but with more of a fitted result, you can leave out a row of Jasmine Stitch in the hat body.
While the Jasmine Stitch is surprisingly easy, it can seem intimidating at first due to the fact that it is constructed out of puffs and not post stitches. It also requires a few small steps in-between each puff that can take a few tries to get right.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED:
PUFF STITCH / JASMINE STITCH:
The Jasmine Stitch, which this whole pattern is named from, is a very striking stitch combination indeed. In reality, this stitch is really just a simple combination of puff stitches.
An explanation of how to do the Jasmine Stitch is provided in the pattern download for this beanie, but if it is completely new to you then it may be helpful to look up a video tutorial. If you are familiar with the Jasmine Stitch before starting this pattern, then constructing the beanie will seem very simple.
FRONT AND BACK POST STITCHES:
In addition to using the Jasmine Stitch in the body of the beanie, 1×1 ribbing is used around the bottom. The ribbing is made using front and back post stitches in dc(double crochet). A few rows of this pattern with the front and back post stitches aligned makes a very nice ribbing and helps the beanie to fit even better.
TECHNIQUES YOU WILL NEED:
You will need to use slip stitches with long loops in-between to seam up this beanie. In addition, slip stitches can be made and tightened to close up the top.
Working with puff stitches and the Jasmine Stitch:
Make 14 puffs in the same size (so that your work looks consistent), or simply as many puffs as you need to reach 17” inches or wrap around your head comfortably. My headband easily stretches to 21 inches .
After that point, make one more puff(15 total or whatever you need). Working the jasmine stitch with 3 puffs at a time, do 7 rows of the jasmine stitch. At the beginning of each row you start with a single puff that serves the same purpose as a turning chain.
SEAMING UP THE BEANIE:
With your rows of Jasmine Stitch done, seaming up the headband is pretty simple. Folding the headband in half end to end, ss the two corners together where you already are with your hook. Then, pull a loop out about “1 in between each join and ss at the other three puff join spaces, making sure to connect the two final corners securely.
After seaming, weave stitches in and out of the beanie top and cinch it tightly shut(see below). One side of your hat may look better based on how the puff stitches react to being gathered up. If you are adding a pom pom it can help to cover some bubbling. Or, you can also choose to leave the beanie as it is now.
ADDING RIBBING AND POM:
The same weight of yarn and the same hook are used for adding ribbing to the Jasmine Beanie.
Set up for ribbing: Starting at the seam, ss into the join. Go around the bottom of the beanie by chaining 3 stitches along each puff and putting a sc into each puff join. SS back at the seam to join.
Row 1: ch3 to get the row started, then go around the bottom of the beanie with dc stitches. Put one dc into each sc stitch from the setup round, and put 3 dc into each chain space. SS to close.
Rows 2-3: ch3 to start the row, and then work around the row with alternating front post and back post dc stitches to make ribbing. ss to close.
When finished, bind off and weave in your ends. Add your choice of pom pom, and enjoy your finished beanie!
