Flurry Beanie and Wrist Warmers: Free Crochet Pattern Set

Looking for an easy and cozy crochet pattern with tons of texture? This beanie and wrist warmer pattern set is perfect if you want to make something that looks more complicated than it really is, but still makes an impact! I used one of my absolute favorite stitches for this set and I think they would be great gifts this holiday season. So keep reading for the full free crochet pattern for the Flurry Beanie and matching wristwarmers!

For this set, I used the star stitch for the gloves and the main body of the beanie. I love the way this stitch looks and when it’s paired with this light-colored yarn, it looks a bit like snowflakes. It makes me think of snow days or waiting to be picked up after school and starting snowball fights with my sister. Although this stitch eats up a bit more yarn than usual, it makes for a really textured, thick, and squishy fabric that is perfect for cold weather!

Flurry Wrist Warmers:

Using the larger hook, chain 29 (31, 33). Work the first row into the back bumps of the chain.

Row 1: HDC into the first chain next to the hook.

For the first star stitch, insert your hook into the same space as the HDC and pull up a loop. Pull up a loop from each of the next 3 chains. YO, and pull through all 5 loops at once. Chain 1 to close the star stitch and you’re done with the first one!

Now, for the next stitch and each one after, we’ll start by working into the previous star stitch. Insert your hook into the 5th “leg” of the star stitch and pull up a loop. Then, insert your hook into the same space on the chain as that 5th leg and pull up another loop. Pull up loops from each of the next 2 spaces. You should again have 5 loops on the hook. YO, and pull through all 5 at once, and chain 1 to close.

Repeat until the last space and HDC into the last chain.

Row 2: Chain 1, turn.  Work 1 SC into the HDC of the previous row. 2 SC into the center, or eye, of each star stitch in the row, SC into the last space. Chain 1 and turn to work the next row.

Row 3: HDC into the chain 1 space. Insert your hook into the same space and pull up a loop. Pull up loops from the next 3 spaces, then YO and pull through all 5 loops. Chain 1 to close. Star st across until the last space. HDC into the last, then chain 1 and turn to start the next row.

Rows 4-18: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your wrist warmer is the height you want it to be, ending on a SC row.

Row 19: Fold the wrist warmer in half and with the RS out, slip stitch loosely in each space along the top and finish in the round. BO and leave an extra long tail for sewing the sides and finishing the bottom edge.

Finishing

Thread the tail yarn through a yarn needle and whip stitch the side closed for about 1 inch. Then whip stitch around only one side for 1.5 inches, make a stitch connecting the two sides again, and continue to whip stitch back up the other half of the 1.5-inch hole for the thumb. Then, bring the yarn needle through the fabric to where you joined the halves together again and stitch the rest of the sides together.

When you reach the bottom edge, secure with a knot but do not cut the yarn. Use your hook to pull a loop through the first stitch in the round and slip stitch loosely around. The extra little bit of slip stitches helps the edges stay neat and even and gives a little support for when you pull the gloves on and off. Then BO, weave in the ends and trim the excess yarn.

Make the second one the same way.

Ribbing

Round 1: Using the smaller hook, work 60 (66, 69) FDC. Basically, chain 4, YO and insert the hook into the first chain, pull up a loop to make a chain, then YO and finish the DC as normal. For each FDC after, YO and insert your hook into the chain made with the previous stitch.

Round 2: Chain 2, FPDC, BPDC around. Then slip stitch to the top of the chain 2 to finish the round.

Rounds 3-6: Repeat round 2 for another 4 rounds. This creates the ribbing of the beanie. See this video for help.

Round 7: Switch to the larger hook and *SC 2, incr* to the last 3 stitches, and SC 3. You have 79 (87, 99) stitches.

Body

For the body of this beanie pattern, I worked in rows from here to create the star stitch pattern and then seamed it together to finish.

Row 1: Chain 1. HDC into the chain. For the first star stitch, insert your hook into the same space as the HDC and pull up a loop. Pull up a loop from each of the next 3 spaces. YO, and pull through all 5 loops at once. Chain 1 to close the star stitch and you’re done with the first one!

Now, for the next stitch and each one after, we’ll work into the previous stitch. Insert your hook into the 5th “leg”
of the star stitch and pull up a loop. Then, insert your hook into the same space on the chain as that 5th leg and pull
up another loop. Pull up loops from each of the next 2 spaces. You should again have 5 loops on the hook. YO,
and pull through all 5 at once, and chain 1 to close. Repeat until the last space and HDC into the last chain.

Row 2: Chain 1, turn. Work 1 SC into the HDC of the previous row. 2 SC into the center, or eye, of each star
stitch in the row, SC into the last space. Chain 1 and turn to work the next row.

Row 3: HDC into the chain 1 space. Insert your hook into the same space and pull up a loop. Pull up loops from the
next 3 spaces, then YO and pull through all 5 loops. Chain 1 to close. Star st across until the last space. HDC into the
last, then chain 1 and turn to start the next row.

Rows 4-21: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your beanie is 9 (9.5, 10) inches tall.

Row 22: Chain 1, turn. Work 1 SC into the HDC of the previous row. SC only 1 into the center of each star stitch
in the row, SC into the last space. Chain 1 and turn to work the next row.

Row 23: Work one more star stitch round. This will bring the top of the hat in quickly for a slouchy gathered look.

Row 24: Repeat row 22.

Small + Medium: BO and leave an extra long tail to finish the top and sew the side seam closed.

Large: Decrease around and then BO as above.

To finish, thread the tail yarn through a tapestry/yarn needle. Bring the needle under the front loops only of the remaining stitches and pull to close the top of the hat. Bring the needle back and forth through the top a few times to secure it well since we gathered a lot of stitches at once.

With the yarn at the open side, hold the two sides together and whip stitch down to the brim to close the opening. If you take your time and do it neatly, the seam is invisible. Then BO, weave in the ends and trim the excess yarn. Add a pom to finish it off or leave it as is!

And you’re all done!

I love how this beanie turned out and I am so glad I made it a matching set with the wrist warmers. A lot of the time, I make beanies that I love but use any gloves I have around, so it was nice to create a set for a change. These are the ones I wear most often and I get comments on them all the time. Can’t get enough of the star stitch? Check out the pattern below for another piece you can add to the set!
