This is a pattern for a crochet beanie hat made with light worsted weight yarn and hook size G/6 (4.25mm). The specific yarn that I used is Snuggly Wuggly by Loops & Threads, 100% acrylic. Other light worsted or even worsted weight yarns can be used too, but pay attention to the gauge.

Note that this pattern is available only in one size: adult. It’s soft and stretchy.

The finished hat measures about 20 inches in circumference and 8 inches in height.

The skill level is intermediate. The hat is made from the bottom up. No, this is not the usual shells stitch. There is a little trick that involves back post double crochets to make the shells puffy and textured.

The pattern is written using the US crochet terminology.

This pattern is my original design and it cannot be redistributed. However, you have the permission to sell finished items made from this pattern.
