I have made a few of these simple beanies and they are a great functional hat, warm and cozy.
I have made them using different yarn and different size crochet hook and each hat is very forgiving… it just seems to work.
The simple, basic pattern is as follows:
- Start with a magic circle or chain 4 and slip stitch into the first chain to form a circle.
- 1st round- 3 ch 15 dbl into the ring, sl st into 3rd chain at the beginning… 16dc
- 2nd round- 3 ch, 1 dc into the same sl st, *1 dc, 2 dc* all the way around… 24dc
- 3rd round- 3 ch, 1 dc into the same sl st, *1 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc* all the way around…32dc
- 4th round- 3 ch, 1 dc into the same sl st, *1 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc* all the way around…40dc
- 5th round- 3 ch, 1 dc into the same sl st, *1 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 dc, 2 dc* all the way around…48dc
- 6th round- 3 ch, 1 dc in each of the stitches
- Repeat the last round until the beanie measures 20cm from the crown.
- Or continue and work an extra 4 rounds for a rolled turn back.
- If the hat is too tight, undo to round 5 and work an extra increase, ie 5 dc then 2 dc
- I used Patons Jet 12 Ply, see link here
- Ball Size : 50g / 74m
- Yarn Weight: 12ply
- Blend: 70% Pure New Wool / 30% Alpaca
I used 5, 6 & 7mm hook depending on the instructions on the yarn label.
