Free Crochet Beanie Pattern.

Free crochet beanie pattern includes all sizes from preemie and newborn to adult size. Crochet beanie is the simplest and easiest hat and is highly recommended for a beginner crocheter as a starter project. This is a basic beanie - you can make it for all the family members: for men, for women, for boys and girls (use different colors and different decorations - flowers, appliques e.t.c.).


SC 2 (the # of stitches is AFTER the stitch's abbreviation) means: make two single crochet stitches in two stitches of the previous row.

2SC (the # of stitches is BEFORE the stitch's abbreviation) means: make two single crochet stitches in one stitch (increase).

THE ROUND TOP OF THE CROCHET BEANIE.

Every crochet hat starts from the top (every knit hat starts from the bottom). It's a flat circle. Do not make a slip stitch at the end of each row and do not make a CH stitch at the beginning of each row, work in spirals instead - you will have no seam. Attach the stitch marker to the end of the first or the second row to indicate it and move the stitch marker up as the work progresses.

CH 3. (make a chain of 3 stitches).

Join the chain in a ring with a slip stitch.
