A knit-look ribbed crochet beanie worked in bulky weight yarn with a soft stretchy fit and subtle gnomish point. These hats have been my go-to winter headwear for years, and now I’ve updated and expanded the crochet pattern to offer more tips, tutorials, and photos!

This ultra squishy cozy toboggan offers several ways to make as well as being made with only 1 skein of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn, or 250-300 yards any #5 weight yarn.

Alternate instructions for a more traditional rounded beanie top are also included, as well as a photo tutorial on how to work the alternate front and back post double crochet if you’ve never tried it before.

Sizes:
Adult Small (stretches to fit 20-22” head)
Adult Large (stretches to fit 22-24” head)

  • Pointed or Rounded options included

Materials:
1 Skein Lion Brand Scarfie (#5 312yd 150g)
