It is possible to substitute with any similar yarn. Should you wish to use a thicker or thinner yarn the number of shells and rounds will be affected. Substitutions must keep stretchiness in mind.

Hooks & Notions

4mm crochet hook, measuring tape, scissors and tapestry needle for sewing in ends.


If using the same or similar yarn, you measurements should be similar to those given throughout the pattern.


It is advisable to read this in conjunction with the custom beanie blog post on Please read all notes as this beanie is customisable, so this pattern is really a method for custom making your own.
This beanie is worked in the round with RS facing throughout. Rounds are joined.
If using the double magic ring it is still very important to weave in the ends properly.
