Skill Level: 


Finished Measurements:  

Made to fit 


2 skeins x Any DK weight yarn. (You will need two balls as this project is worked double stranded.)

6.5mm/US size K-10.5 crochet hook 

Measuring tape

Large eye needle 


Gauge: 13 sts by 12 rows = 10cm (4”)


BLO single crochet through back loop only 

CH: Chain 

SC: Single Crochet 

ST(S): Stitches 

Pattern notes:  

1. Pattern is worked into the BLO to create a ribbing effect. 

2. Pattern is worked flat in back and forth rows then seamed together at the end. 

3. CH 1 does not count as stitch. 

Pattern Directions 

With two strands of yarn held together, CH36. Turn. 

Row 1: SC into the second CH from hook and in each CH across, CH 1, turn. (35 sc)

Row 2: BLO SC in each ST across, CH 1, turn. Repeat Row 2 until your piece measures the circumference of your head. Tie off, leaving a 30 cm (12”) tail for sewing. 

Complete a rectangle that fits the circumference of your head.  Take the tape measure and wrap it around the largest part of your head, above your ears. Write your measurement down as you will need to crochet your fabric piece to this measurement. 

Once your rectangle is complete, using your tail and tapestry needle, seam both sides of your beanie together using a mattress stitch. Make sure to sew through both loops on one side and through the back loop of the opposite side. Do not tie off

To create the gather at the top of the beanie, pick up one stitch from each "ridge", gently pull yarn tight. Secure the end with a knot and weave in all the tails. 

Put your beanie on, fold up the end to create a hem, and enjoy!
