Meet India Yasmein of Stitch’D Factory & the High Line Crochet Beanie Pattern!
Today on the TNTP Blog, we are so excited to introduce our awesomely talented friend the crocheter/knitter extraordinaire behind Stitch’D Factory, Miss India Yasmein Williams!!!
India has been working with The Neon Tea Party for the past few months to help us oomph up our library of crochet tutorials as well as create the very first pattern available for purchase in The Neon Tea Party Shop: the incredibly stylish, incredibly beginner-friendly crocheted High Line Beanie, made from Omegacryl and modeled above by India herself! You can find all the supplies in our High Line Beanie Bundle in three awesome color ways!
We asked India to introduce herself and her business, and to share some thoughts on her freakin’ fantastic crochet beanie pattern, which we are SO excited for you all to try out!
Without further ado… CommuniTEA meet the fabulous India Yasmein!
Hey everyone! I’m India Yasmein, creator, designer, and maker behind Stitch’D Factory, soon to be Stitch’d by India Yasmein. My business is based out of Brooklyn but with everything going on this last year I’ve had to make a few moves that look like they may be permanent, I’ll let you all know when I figure it out!
I am a knitter and crocheter of things . . . all things, for both winter accessories and summer wears. In addition to getting into the pattern game, I’ve always made my own patterns in my head. Now I’ve begun to share them with the world so that you all can make and enjoy my pieces! You can find made-to-order and ready-made items as well as my patterns on my website at stitchdfactory.com. You can also follow me on Instagram to keep up with Stitch’D.

Which leads to the hypeness of today . . . I am so excited to introduce The High Line Beanie, a simple and easy-to-follow pattern specially made for beginners. It works up rather quickly so you can see all your hard work and then you can show all your friends how unbelievably talented you are!
Yes I said it, and looking at this beanie and all its texture — everyone will think it was made by a pro! I welcome all first-timers and those who have always wanted to give crochet a try . . . The High Line Beanie is the perfect first crochet project.
And the cherry on top, I just wrapped up a set of beginner tutorials for TNTP that will help guide you along your new crochet learning adventure. All you need is the pattern, a crochet hook, your yarn, and a pair of scissors and you’re ready to take on The High Line Beanie.
If you are a little more advanced and want to try different yarns to spice it up GO FOR IT, just be sure to check your gauge before starting your project. If you’re not sure how to check gauge or don’t know what gauge is, you can find all the answers to those questions here on TNTP’s Online Craft Studio. All of these step-by-step instructions are a great tool to have when beginning and brushing up on your skills.
For this project, I used Omegacryl yarn (7 balls) to bring to life honestly one of my most favorite beanies of all time. It is so fun and colorful — I get so many compliments when I wear my High Line Beanie. Omegacryl is a beautiful Mexican yarn that I was introduced to a few years back and I’ve been a little obsessed. But can you really blame me? I mean look at that colorway!
Winter may be coming to an end, or so it’s supposed to be — I don’t know with all these end-of-season winter storms, but learning this beanie pattern is perfect timing to keep you cozy the last few weeks of winter. And depending on the type of yarn you use you may be able to bring it into your spring wardrobe. Ok, I may be pushing it with the spring wardrobe but what can I say, I love rocking my Stitch’D!
Oh, we’ll definitely be rocking our Stitch’D High Line Beanie right into spring!
Thank you SO much to India for coming on the TNTP Blog today!
You can find The High Line Beanie pattern here in the TNTP Shop, as well as the yarn, crochet hook & the rest of the supplies you’ll need to follow along with the project!
Peace, love & neon,
