Dragon Scale Messy Bun Beanie Crochet Pattern

My Dragon Scale Gloves were so popular that I decided to create a pattern for a Dragon Scale Messy Bun Beanie to go with them!  If you haven’t seen the pattern for the gloves yet you can find it by clicking here.  I have been using Lion Brand Mandala to make them but I have also made them with Lion Brand Scarfie yarn.  You can use a heavier weight yarn and just adjust your hook size to keep the size the same.  I use a 5.00 mm hook with the Mandala so if you wanted to use a 4 weight yarn you just need to change your hook to a 5.5 mm or a 6.0 mm depending on how tight or loose you crochet.  I tend to crochet pretty tight so I used a 6.00 mm hook with the Lion Brand Scarfie yarn and it came out perfect.

Offset Clusters Stitch

I am a big fan of cluster stitches!  I mean seriously?  What's not to love!  They create beautiful textures, are pretty thick, and they work up fast.  Cluster stitches are my go to stitches for scarves and blankets/afghans.  I also love them for wash cloths.  The texture really pops when you crochet them in cotton.  The offset cluster stitch is a new one I just learned.  It came from the book listed below.

What I Used To Make This Tutorial

Hook: Clover Amour 3.5 mmYarn: Yarn Bee in Blushy
Source: The Big Book of Crochet Stitches


Stitches Used
Cluster Stitch:  Yarn over and insert your hook in the specified chain/stitch, yarn over and draw up, *yarn and pull through 2 loops*, repeat from * 2 more times until you have 4 loops on your hook, pull through all 4 loops.

Shell Stitch:  Double Crochet, Chain 1, and Cluster Stitch into the specified chain/stitch.

Foundation Chain
The Offset Clusters Stitch is worked in multiples of 3+2.  For my example swatch I chained 30 + 2 = 32 chains total.

Row 1
Cluster Stitch into the back hump of the 5th chain from the hook, *skip the next 2 chains, Shell Stitch into the next chain*, repeat from * until you get to the last chain.  Double Crochet into the last chain, Chain 4 and Turn.
