I really love the way knitted hats look but I can’t knit… so I thought it would be fun to design a beanie using crochet stitches that looked like knitting.

This pattern is listed as Intermediate but I provide a video tutorial and picture tutorial along with the pattern, its actually quite easy!

A lot of my testers found it was easier to go down a hook size to do the band and then go back up to an “L” hook to create the body of the hat.
