I have gotten so many requests from friends to show them how to make a beanie, and each time, I write everything down really detailed for them, but sometimes it’s better to see it being done. Now, anyone can work up their own beanie following along with this tutorial :)

If you would like to see any other patterns done step-by-step, or have any other size requests, drop me a line :)

This pattern is written assuming you know how to do the basic techniques and stitches of making a slip knot, chaining, joining, working a single crochet and double crochet, and fastening off. I do have tutorials coming soon for these, but for now, feel free to send me an email or leave a comment with any questions.

- 185 yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used about half a skein (or a little less) of Red Heart’s With Love in Iced Aqua
- I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
- #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
I’ve also had the same results with Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn, and JoAnn’s Sincerely. I also enjoy using Deborah Norville’s Everyday Soft, but have to tweek things a little as I find the yarn to be a tad thinner.

Time Spent:
I have my basic women’s beanies done in about an hour and a half.
