The Coffee Bean Collection

Have you ever wondered why I have so many patterns that seem to be the same? You’re not alone! Meet The Coffee Bean Collection. Each pattern features the same stitch pattern, but a different weight of yarn. In this post I will briefly cover each pattern to help you understand the difference and choose the one you want to make.

I have linked each pattern on Ravelry but you can find all of my patterns on Etsy as well!

The Original

The original is just titled The Coffee Bean Beanie and it was designed very specifically for hand dyed yarn. A lot of indie dyers carry a weight of yarn that is single-ply wool and is absolutely GORGEOUS. It’s in between a bulky and super bulky weight, so some dyers will call it “chunky.” It is always 76 yards. When I designed this pattern there weren’t many other patterns for this weight of yarn, but now you can find a lot. Some people use Lion Brand Woolease Thick & Quick to make this pattern since it’s a thinner super bulky. The hat will be a little thicker but still fit just fine.

The Extra Bold

The Extra Bold Coffee Bean Beanie pattern is designed for super bulky yarn that is on the thick side. Some example of yarn to use for this beanie are Knitpicks Tuff Puff, We Are Knitters The Wool, Wool And The Gang Crazy Sexy Wool, and Malabrigo Rasta. This is a nice, chunky beanie that’s cute and warm. I like to top mine with a yarn pom!

The Medium Roast

The Medium Roast Coffee Bean Beanie pattern is, you guessed it, a little bit lighter. This pattern is written for bulky weight yarn but I also include a pattern for Knitpicks Muse. This is one of my favorite yarns but it’s a bit thinner than your average bulky yarn. It uses the same size needles but has a different gauge and cast on. I think you’ll really like this one if you try it!

The Light Roast

The Light Roast Coffee Bean Beanie pattern is the most lightweight of them all and uses worsted weight yarn. I love this weight so much because it wears nicely and drapes perfectly if you want a little slouch. The yarn I used to design this hat is Knitpicks Preciosa, but you can use any worsted weight yarn.

The Bulky Cowl

The Bulky Coffee Bean Cowl is flowy and has a nice drape. It’s warm but lays down so it’s not for blocking wind chills. I designed this cowl with Knitpicks Swish Bulky but you can use any bulky yarn. Click here for the pattern!

The Super Bulky Cowl

The Super Bulky Coffee Bean Cowl is thick and stands up stiff. It’s nice and warm for blocking the winter wind. I used Knitpicks Tuff Puff to design mine and testers used a variety of yarn including We Are Knitters The Wool, Wool And The Gang Crazy Sexy Wool, and Malabrigo Rasta. Click here for the pattern!
