Looking for a warm and cozy beanie pattern?  I have the perfect one for you!  Look no farther than this crochet winter hat pattern.

This is actually a pattern that I made last year ( I even photographed it last year) but never got around to sharing the free pattern with you!  I finally thought that it is the perfect time to share it will the cooler weather on the horizon, this beanie will be the perfect project to start working on!

I’d say that this pattern is a little bit more on the intermediate side of crochet as it uses more than basic stitches.  

Details About This Free Crochet Beanie Pattern

This beanie is worked from the brim up.  It has a super wide brim that is folded to create a double brim making is a super warm winter hat.

I used basic crochet stitches like single crochet stitches and half double crochet stitches along with a few other fun stitches like back loop single crochet and puff stitches to create this hat.

I didn’t make this beanie in different sizes, just an adult size that will fit average adult heads of 21” to 23” in circumference.

I even think that this beanie hat would look good topped with a faux fur pom pom.

With this particular pattern being made with a wool blend yarn, it makes for a super warm hat for cold weather, especially with the brim being doubled.

Yarn I Used

I used a fun yarn from We Crochet called Chroma Worsted Weight.  It is a 70% superwash wool and 30% nylon blend of yarn.  I chose the color pixie and love the blue, purple, pink and green tones in this specific color.

There are a lot of different colors to choose from in this specific yarn, so there are lots of great beanie options!

It is a worsted weight yarn, but it is really on the thinner side of worsted weight.  To me, it is kind of almost on the #3 lightweight side of yarn, so definitely make sure to check your gauge to see if you need to change hook size before you start this hat or if you switch out a different yarn or even different yarn weights!

Can I Use a Different Yarn to Crochet The Beanie in?

You certainly could!  Just make sure to match my gauge.  Whether you choose to use an acrylic yarn or a wool blend yarn, as long as the gauge matches mine, you will be just fine.

I know if you are like me, then making a gauge swatch is not your favorite thing to do.  Myself, being a crochet designer, I have learned the importance of making swatches first as it can save you a lot of trouble down the road.

Especially if it is a pattern for a wearable where the size is super important, it is always a good idea to make a gauge swatch.
