Gruene Beanie Crochet Pattern

Gruene Beanie Crochet Pattern

4 minute read

The Gruene Beanie is a gorgeous textured beanie that is bulky and warm but not super heavy.  I loved this beanie when I first created it many years ago, but I fell in love with this beanie again after giving it a makeover. I was so excited to remake the Gruene Beanie in my hand dyed avocado yarn.  This avocado green color has so many different shades of green in it and it works up beautifully with all the texture that is in the Gruene Beanie.  I will enjoy wearing this beanie on ALL the cold days!

The Gruene Beanie was named after Gruene, Texas.  Which is a beautiful historic town in the district of New Braunfels which is about a 40-minute drive from me. This place is a quaint little town full of small shops, delicious food and gorgeous water fronts.  During the warm months you can go tubing down the Guadalupe River.  I enjoy visiting small towns on cool days where you can enjoy being bundled up (without being too cold or overheat) and enjoy finding unique finds at antique shops, listening to music around the town and enjoying a bite to eat on the water

When my husband and I first started dating, we would go to this small town and visit their little shops, one of them was a music shop that had CD's you could only find there.  I remember walking around on chilly days and I wished I had a squishy warm beanie to wear.  Now I will be prepared with a gorgeous and quick to make beanie like the Gruene Beanie.
