Simple Beanies in DC

Simple Beanies

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.

Pattern

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
