Autumn Aura Beanie

Autumn Aura Beanie Free Crochet Pattern


Am I the only one excited for Autumn this year? 
Living in New York the weather has yet to reach those crisp temperatures but I am well prepared for them in this super comfy new beanie design.

This textured beanie is made in a bottom up construction while working in the round. It was first designed as a fast make that I could create in bulk for this years Winter markets. During my first market in September it proved to be such a hit that I have decided to share the pattern with you guys! Since it was designed with that in mind it is the perfect fast make for market prep or Christmas presents as it comes in four sizes, for the whole family.

How long does it take?

The Adult size works up in just over an hour, with a little more time needed for a pompom if your heart desires.

Don't have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
