I absolutely love the texture of this crochet hat pattern!  It is made by using a simple crochet technique that I will be explaining later.  This crochet hat includes the written pattern along with a few photos as you go along.

This free pattern uses a few different forms of basic crochet stitches like back loop single crochet stitches and half double crochet in the 3rd loop stitches.

I specifically made this beanie with the option to have a removable pom by simply adding a button onto the inside top of the hat. I buy my faux fur pom poms that have the little elastic loops on them and you can pull it through the top of the beanie and loop it around the button.

This way if you want to change and wear a different color of faux fur pom pom or no pom at all, it’s super easy to do so.

Of course, if you wanted to make a matching yarn pom pom for your beanie, that is always an option too depending on what look you are wanting.

Crochet hats always make for great gifts especially during the winter season.  

Things You Need to Know to Crochet the Cozy Campfire Beanie

There are a couple simple techniques that you need to know in order to crochet this easy crochet beanie pattern.  You will need to know how to tell the difference between the front loop and back loop of a crochet stitch along with the identifying the 3rd loop of a half double crochet.

The half double crochet in the 3rd loop is explained below in the special stitches section.

This is a fairly easy hat pattern that is worked from the bottom of the hat or brim up.  

Yarn Substitutions 

This cozy hat is made with a #4 worsted weight yarn called Brava Tweed.  I love this beanie made in solid colors because that really allows for the texture of the stitches to shine.

There are actually quite a few yarns that you could substitute in place of the Brava Tweed yarn that have the same weight and feel.

Cut yarn leaving a long tail, close the top of the beanie

You can leave the beanie as is or attach a button on the inside to attach your pom pom to make it removable or just sew the pom pom on.

To attach the button, I use an embroidery needle and black floss thread. I turn the beanie inside out and sew the button on the very top middle of the beanie.

Turn your beanie right side out, and you can now use your crochet hook to grab the little elastic on the pom and pull it through and over the button.

Your hat is now finished! Enjoy!
