Hello! I hope everyone had a very blessed Christmas and New Year’s! I have a very special beanie to share with you today. I made this beanie back in early November and fell in love with it. It was something like 8 in the morning when I had a sudden desire to give this idea that I had in my head a try and I was over the moon with how it turned out! I just can’t express in words how much I love it. If I remember correctly I may have even did a little happy dance once finishing it and trying it on. It’s that good.
To make this beanie you basically are going to crochet a rectangle, single crochet the edge together and then whip stitch the top and cinch up. I added a faux fur pom pom to it but it would be so cute with a yarn pom pom as well. Using half double crochet back loop only (hdcblo) gives it a fun ribbed look that looks a little bit knit. Win Win!
Let’s get to the pattern shall we?
Yarn: Berroco Vintage worsted weight (here) (or any worsted weight yarn) Hook: crochet hook size I 5.5mm (here) Other Supplies: darning needle (here) and faux fur pom pom (here)
Terms: ch– chain hdc– half double crochet hdcblo– half double crochet back loop only sc– single crochet
Sizing: This beanie is easy to size for who ever you want to make it for! Measure the person’s head circumference and subtract 4″. (This is the finished length you will crochet) Measure from the top of the head to the bottom of the ear lobe and add 2″. (This is the length of starting chain)
This pattern will fit an older teen to an adult size head.
Grab you hook and let’s get started!
Chain 38 Row 1- hdc into 3rd ch from hook, hdc across Row 2- ch 2, turn, hdcblo across Repeat row 2 until rectangle measures 17 1/2″ long.
Fold in half and seam closed into a tube. I used sc to seam the edge. Tie off and then whip stitch the top of the tube and cinch closed. Tie off leaving a tail to attach the pom pom. Weave in all ends and do a happy dance because you are finished your Happy Hat!
If you have any questions please ask! I hope you enjoy this pattern. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
