A free beanie pattern for those cool mornings or lazy afternoons spent sipping a hot drink, reading a book, relaxing, and renewing your soul.

This simple beanie only requires knowledge of some basic stitches to complete, so it’s a great option for those who have worked a pattern or two, and want something a little more detailed than just a one or two stitch hat. You will need to know what the front and back loops of a stitch are, and know how to work around the stitch (instead of in the top, as usual). Both are easy techniques to master, and you’ll get plenty of practice on this pattern!

For those who would like to crochet a flower instead of buy, and attach an accessory, I’ve included instructions for a nice big flower near the bottom of this post. You can also leave the flower off altogether, for a unisex look.

Materials Needed:
5.5mm (I) hook, or hook needed to obtain measurements. (Gauge is 13 stitches to 4”)
1 skein Vanna’s Choice in Taupe Mist, or Pearl Mist
yarn needle
scissors
flower accessory (optional)
sewing needle (for flower accessory)
thread (for flower accessory)

Stitches Used:
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
BLSC = back loop single crochet, work stitches in the back loop only
BLDC = back loop double crochet, work stitches in the back loop only
FPHDC = front post half double crochet, put your hook in from the front, and work the stitch around the post of the stitch from previous round
BPHDC = back post half double crochet, put your hook in from the back, and work the stitch around the post of the stitch from previous round

-Finished hat should measure 8” high by 9 ½” wide. It should have a good amount of stretch, and fit most teens, and ladies. If you find your hat running small, go up a hook size or two.
