I love the look of knit beanies! Honestly sometimes I prefer them to crocheted ones, but sadly I cannot knit! So, until I learn please scroll down and enjoy this free crochet dupe!
I was inspired by a knit hat I saw while browsing the internet earlier this week.
This is a beginner friendly pattern that is customizable to accommodate any size.
This project is made by working in rows to create a panel that will be sewn together to complete your Faux Knit Beanie. The chain 1 before each row does not count as a stitch unless stated otherwise.
-5 mm crochet hook
-worsted weight yarn
-sl st: slip stitch
-hdc: half double crochet
3rd loop hdc:
-Newborn to 6 months: ch 36
-6 months to 12 months: ch 41
-12 months to 24 months: ch 46
-2 years to 10 years: ch 51
-10 years to adult: ch 56
Row 1: Reference sizing info above on how to complete your starting chain.
Row 2: Place 1 hdc into the 2nd chain from your hook. Then place 1 hdc into each remaining st of the row. (35 sts, 40 sts, 45 sts, 50 sts, 55 sts.)
Row 3: Ch 1 and turn your work. Place 1 3rd loop hdc into each st of the row. (35 sts, 40 sts, 45 sts, 50 sts, 55 sts.)
Repeat Row 3 until you have reached your desired head circumference. You can reference the chart below or optionally you can measure the circumference with a measuring tape for yourself. I suggest making this panel 1/2-1 inch smaller than the circumference you actually need because the finished beanie will stretch when worn. For example: If you have a 22 inch head circumference then you will make your panel to be 21 inches.
Scroll down for directions on how to complete your beanie.
Break yarn with a long tail for sewing. Fold your panel in half and sew. Tie of securely. Use a running stitch to close the top of your beanie. Tie off securely. Weave in any ends you may have remaining. Optionally you can sew on a pom pom! Fold your brim up and your Faux Knit Beanie is complete!
