The Granite Beanie Crochet Pattern is a beautifully textured beanie that is easy to work and features a beautiful, warm, solid texture.
When I learned the Spiked Sedge Stitch a little while back, I knew it was going to become one of my favourite stitches. It has a gorgeous texture that is really striking in this beanie! The stitch pattern itself is made up of single, half and double crochet stitches. The final double crochet in each set is a long or spiked double crochet stitch which gives the stitch a bit more texture and definition.

The crochet hat is worked from the brim up. I have worked a double thick brim for this hat meaning that I work the brim twice as long so that I can fold it up, however the design is easy to customize as I will explain below and show in the video tutorial and you may wish to work a shorter brim. After working the brim you will simply work the body of the hat to the height desired, fasten off leaving a long tail, and then use that tail to sew the top of the hat closed. I love closing crochet beanies using this method, it make them much easier to work!
For the Granite Beanie Crochet Pattern, I will be working with a single colour of a worsted weight yarn. In the photos and in the video tutorial I am using the Color Theory Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in the colour Thunder. It is super soft and 100% acrylic. You will only need 1.5 balls to complete this pattern.
For this pattern you will also need a 4.5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below I will be using an interchangeable wand hook that was handcrafted by Bowltech Crochet Hooks. Another favourite crochet hook is the Birchwood Hook by Rowan Yarns.
This pattern will be written out in full below followed by a free video tutorial. The pattern is free to follow on my site and will always be free! If, however, you would like a printable copy, you may purchase one from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:

Free Crochet Pattern:
Brim (Worked in rows):
Ch 26 (For brim that is folded over).
Row 1: Sl st in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 1, turn. (25 sl sts)
Row 2: Working in the blo, sl st in each st across. Ch 1, turn. (25 sl sts)
Continue to repeat row 2 until work from the beginning measures approximately 16-17 inches.
Do not fasten off, but fold brim of hat so that two shorter ends meet. Now working through both thicknesses, sl st across working through the blo on each side. Do not fasten off. If working the long brim that you intend on folding, simply turn your work to work around the edge. If you are working a short brim that you will not fold up to wear, turn work right side out (so that the right side is facing you).
Now working around the edge of the brim, continue working in rounds as follows:
Hat Body (Worked in rounds):
Rnd 1: Ch 1, evenly work 84 hdc all the way around, switch to colour B in the final st. Join with a sl st in the first st, do not turn. (84 sts)
Rnd 2: Ch 1, [sc, hdc, dc] in the same st as joining, sk the next 2 sts, *[sc, hdc, dc] in the next st, sk the next 2 sts; Rpt from * acround, join with a sl st in the 1st st. Ch 1, turn.
Rnd 3: Ch 1, [Sc, hdc] in the same sc as joining, dc in the space below the first sc 2 rows below, *sk the next 2 sts, [sc, hdc] in the next sc, dc in the sp below the sc 2 rows below; rpt from * round, join with a sl st in the 1st st. Ch 1, turn.
Rnds 4-21: Repeat round 3 (or until the hat body, not including the brim, is about 7 inches tall or the desired height).
Fasten off leaving an extra long tail in your final colour (I recommend 15-20 inches). Using the long tail, sew the top of the hat closed by weaving the yarn in and out through the stitches at the top of the hat, then gently pull closed. Fasten off and weave in your ends. Attach Pompom to the top if desired.
