An easy Crochet Beanie with a classic knit look

 

This crochet beanie is suitable for any gender.  The hat is easily adjustable for size, simply make your starting chain taller or shorter to adjust the height, and increase or decrease the number of rows to adjust the circumference.  The pattern I have worked for this classic beanie is to fit an adult head that measures approximately 20-22 inches.  It is worked entirely of slip stitches.  If the slip stitches sound intimidating, do not worry! The super bulky weight yarn makes it much easier to work the slip stitches.  You will certainly want to give it a try!

The Materials:

I mentioned above that this beanie can be made in an hour or less! The main reason for this is that it is made using a super bulky weight yarn.  For my samples I have used the Wool Ease Thick & Quick and yarn by Lion Brand.  This is one of my favourite wool blend yarns.  It is super cozy and still has some of the warmth of wool.  Along with the super bulky weight yarn I have used a 10mm crochet hook such as this handmade birchwood one by Furls Crochet.

  1. Hello! Thank you for this pattern – it works up super quickly and I love the knit-look. I’ve already made 2 for Christmas. One feedback I do have: when I was seaming the hat, I was having a hard time making it look seamless. I tried several times using different stitches. It was only when I watched the tutorial for this hat that I realized I should have sl st on the back bumps on my first row. It would be great if you would include that in your instructions so that the hats would be seamless from the first try. Thank you!

  2. I had the EXACT same issue! I’m I cam across your comment because I was then able to rewatch the video and see exactly where I did my first row incorrectly. 🙂
