Welcome to the Bursts of Aloha Beanie pattern, this is a sister pattern to the Bursts of Aloha Ear Warmer and Cowl Set! This is a special pattern as it’s gone through many revisions over the last two years. I’m so excited to finally release it for you to make and in four sizes. This pattern can easily be converted to a messy bun beanie as well. I love the texture and fit of this beanie and it’s sure to capture everyone’s attention.

The yarn I used in this pattern is hand-dyed by my from Katie at A Handmade Journey in her colorway Beach Bum. You can follow her on her Instagram account @ahandmadejourney to get updates on when she has pre-orders for yarn of contact her to request a custom dye order.

The special stitch in this pattern is a jasmine stitch and I’ve included a video as well as links to help learn this stitch. With a little practice and patience, you can create this beautiful texture.
