Learn To Crochet: Beanie Pattern

The beanie. I love them and I always reach for one when I get dressed. I love this mustard color and I usually have to talk myself out of wearing it every single day. Earlier this week I introducedinstructional videos for crocheting, today I am sharing the pattern to this hat so you can put those videos to use! 

Beginner Crochet Beanie Pattern

(click for instructional videos)


sc-single crochet

rib stitch

sl st- slip stitch

dc-double crochet

hook size: J/6mm

Yarn used: Loops & Threads Cozy Wool (1 1/2 skeins)

ch 10

sc in each stitch, only the front of the stitches to make a rib stitch. 

continue until reaches 22-24 inches (depending on size of head). Try it on around your head and make sure it fits snuggly. It should look like a headband right now. Sl st the ends together to make a “headband.”

From top of where you just finished slip stitching your ends together, 2 dc in each stitch around hat. Once you come back to the beginning, continue around your hat with a dc stitch, but only once in each stitch. this will keep the shape as a rectangle instead of growing bigger and bigger.

Continue until hat measures a 10 inch rectangle (or keep going if you want it to be slouchier). 

Tie off ends and lay hat flat (see below photo). From the middle, draw a loop on to a middle stitch and slip stitch through both layers of hat. Take the middle of another layer of the hat and keep slip stitching layers together until there are no large openings on the top of your hat. Tie it off and you are finished!

Optional: Add a yarn pom pom on top and a little scrap leather rectangle!

*This pattern is for personal use only. 

I have been adding leather to all my crochet and knitting projects these days. I love the added detail, I think it adds so much!

I would love nothing more than to see your crochet projects you are working on, so please show me if you decide to make anything!
