How To Crochet a Beanie

I need to show you how to crochet a beanie, because I love crocheting beanies and my kids love them, too!   So if I show you then then you can join in on the fun. 

They’re a quick, easy project that can be made for just about anyone.  They make the best gifts, too.

Crochet beanies are great for beginner crocheters.  They will give you practice working in rounds and are usually a simple pattern or stitch that repeats.  They are also a quick project.  So, you get a finished product in a short amount of time, which is really nice when you’re just learning to crochet.

Remember, beanies are just a kind of hat, so everything that applies to crochet hats applies here.  That means that you’ll be able to find lots of different kinds of patterns from super simple to extra fancy. 

You can make beanies with just about any kind of yarn in any color or with multiple colors.  You can take any pattern and make it uniquely your own style.

You can also adjust the length of your beanie to fit just perfectly.  All you have to do is add or subtract rows in the main body of your beanie. 

How to Crochet a Beanie note

Be sure that where you decide to add or subtract rounds is done after the increasing rounds are worked.  That would be in the rounds that are worked with the exact same number of stitches.

This is a really basic pattern for a beanie.  So, it’s a great one to start with.  In this pattern I'll also tell you where you can adjust the width or length.

I used worsted weight (4) yarn.  Red Heart Super Saver works really well.
