Tutorial for a crochet beanie with embossed leaves

If you're looking for a design for a beanie that has plenty of personality, that's crocheted and made with a yarn which is very warm and contains a large percentage of alpaca, then your search ends here. This crochet beanie also has the added feature of having embossed leaves, a detail that makes it truly beautiful and highly distinctive. The moment that you put this amazing hat on your head you won't need anything else to make you stand out and feel great. This can be attributed to the motif but also to our Sierra yarn, which in addition to being very soft also has a range in both solid and melange colors.

Let's begin.

CROCHET STITCHES USED
Chain
Slip stitch
Single crochet
Double crochet
Elastic single crochet:
knit this stitch as you would a normal single crochet, but instead of taking both loops of the stitch from the previous round, you only take the back loop.
Raised stitch:
you knit this by passing the hook around the stitch below. If this is done from front to back and again to the front you achieve a raised stitch on the front. If we do the same but passing from back to front then to the back again you achieve a raised stitch at the back.
