I came up with this crochet beanie design when I was browsing Facebook and read a comment where a lady was saying that all her hats turned into a wok every time she tried to make one. She said she tried every beginner hat video she could find and just never had any luck with it. She even said when her kids see her starting a hat they’d say “Hey Mom, you making another wok for the head again?”

I laughed out loud at this and later on I gave it more thought, that it really sucks that some people have this issue, but they should be able to make hats too! So I thought I would try to make one using a piece of rectangle fabric. One that could be done in rows and easy enough to turn into a hat. So this is what I came up with.

This is the second sideways beanie crochet pattern I’ve designed. If you missed the first one and the story behind these hats, then you can find it here Crochet Sideways Beanie – Basket weave Stitch
