A few days ago, I released the Shell Wrist Warmers. Those were a little side project to this beanie. I’ve been saving this Loops & Threads Charisma for the perfect project, and I found that I love variegated yarns with fans, shells, or grouped stitches! This is a quick to work up free bulky shell beanie crochet pattern and you can use any leftover yarn to make matching Shell Wrist Warmers! This is a great shell beanie crochet pattern if you’re hoping for a quick project!

These beanies are warm and easy to wash, I bought several different colors, afraid to embroider them at first, but they turned out great.
