Crochet Easy Mandala Fluffy Beanie
Hi everyone, this week I am bringing to you a new crochet tutorial for an easy crochet Mandala Fluffy Beanie. This crochet project is really easy and fun to crochet.
The video tutorial can be found on Youtube as always: Crochet Easy Mandala Fluffy Beanie Video Tutorial
Crochet Easy Mandala Fluffy Beanie: the yarn
Mandala fluffy yarn is a jumbo sized yarn, and is a delight to work with. I ordered this beautiful Mandala yarn last month, as I loved how cosy and soft it looked. For this project, I used the shade Pixie Hawkfish for this project, and it is the most delightful and feminine colour.
I love variegated pink yarns, and this was perfect for me. I had always known I would create a warm fluffy beanie with this yarn. The result I got was not disappointing. This project worked up quickly, and this yarn is super soft to work with.
I am a great lover of Lion Brand’s Mandala classic yarn. Indeed, I crocheted a beautiful asymmetrical shawl pattern called The Unicorn Shawl a while back. This easy crochet project can be found on my blog: Crochet The Asymmetrical Unicorn Shawl Free Pattern & Video Tutorial
Crochet Easy Mandala Fluffy Beanie: the inspiration
I had had the inspiration for a thick and warm beanie quite a long time ago. To be honest, I was just waiting to find the perfect yarn for such a project.
The weather here in the UK has been freezing cold of late, so I really needed an extra warm addition to my hat collection quickly.
This jumbo yarn looks and feels extra warm. It is absolutely perfect for the extra warmth needed on very cold days. I love it already, and am presently making a warm cowl to go with this crochet hat already.
Do you love warm cosy hats as much as me?

Sewing in your hat
With tapestry needle and yarn, start sewing up your hat from the bottom up (wrong side). Use whichever stitch you are most comfortable with (I will be using the mattress stitch).
When you reach the top of the hat, insert needle in and out of hat. When you gently pull on yarn, it closes up the top of the hat. Once your hat is securely stitched together, and you are happy with the result, pull tightly on top of hat (still on the wrong side). Make a double knot to secure it’s stitching.
Sewing on the pompom
Either with darning thread and needle, or yarn and tapestry needle, secure fur pompom on the top of the hat, making sure it is securely fastened.
Turn your hat so the right side is facing.
Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
