2 Hour Crochet Beanie Free Pattern

I also love an easy pattern and this 2 hour crochet beanie is the easiest. It is a simple two row repeat and you will finish it in no time. Just turn on a nite movie and go.

Don’t be fooled by the little boy in the picture. There is instructions below for both a child and adult size beanie. Plus to make it larger you just have to keep adding more rows. It is just that easy.

A Slightly Thicker Yarn

If you continue following me, you will see that I am temporarily obsessed with a size 5 yarn. I picked up a variety of colors in Lion Brand’s Color Made Easy and I have been cranking out new projects in very little time. The yarn is just a small bit larger than a size 4 yarn, but works up much faster.

The larger yarn also allows us to use a larger hook which just adds to the speed of this project. I am using a size K 6.5 mm hook, but you will want to use the hook that matches the gauge.

2 Hour Crochet Beanie Pattern

Notes:
-Pattern is written in US terms
-The pattern is written for the child size, the adult size is in the parenthesis. If only one number is provided then that number is for both sizes.

Ch 27 (31)

R1: Sc in 2nd Ch from Hook, Sc in next 5 Ch, *Ch1, Skip Ch, Sc in next Ch* repeat from *to* a total of 10(12) times.

R2: Ch1, turn, Sc in first St, *Sc in Ch1 Space, Ch1, Skip St* repeat from *to* a total of 9(11) times. Sc into next Ch1 space. Sc in BLO of last 6 Sts.

R3: Ch1, turn, Sc in BLO of first 6 Sts, *Ch1, Skip St, Sc in next Ch1 Space* repeat from *to* a total of 9(11) times. Ch1, Skip St, Sc in last St.

For the child size hat you will repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 50 rows or until the brim fits around the child’s head.

For the adult size continue to repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 55 rows or until the brim fits comfortably around your head.

once you have completed your last row, leave a long tail and use it to sew the first row to the last row.

Gathering the Top of the 2 Hour Crochet Beanie

Quick note: The photos below are of a different hat but we will be gathing this hat the exact same way. I do recommend that you use the same color as the hat to gather the top. The contrasting color you see below is just for demonstration purposes.

You are more than welcome to run a gathering stitch around the top og the hat to gather it together. That method works great, but here a a fun new method that I like to use for gathering the top of a hat.

First, using a long strand of yarn you are going to create a star on the top of your hat. Just stitch through on of the last stitches of a row in each place that their would be a star point.

Now pull this yarn tight bring those five points into the center. This will leave you with 5 folds on the outside of the hat.

Take your yarn once more and make the same star pattern hooking the center of these five folded areas.

Pull this star tight and you will be left with a nice neat fold at the top of your hat. I think this method leaves the top of the hat looking neat enough that it does not need a pom pom, but I love pom pom so sew one on top if you like.

Your hat is complete and ready to keep your head warm!

    Can this pattern also be made with worsted weight yarn? What happens with the sizing?

      It you use worsted weight yarn several things will have to change. You will have to add to the starting chain, adjust how much of the hat is worked in the BLO and how much it worked as the moss stitch. Then you will need to work several extra rows until the hat fits around your head. It will also take longer than 2 hours because of the extra rows and stitches.

    Nice looking hat. I have a question about the ribbing around the edge. How is this made? I don’t see a stitch change from the basic pattern to the ribbing.
    Thanks for sharing your creativity.

      At either the beginning or the end of each row (it alternates in the two row repeat) you will work 6 Stitches in the back loops only. This part of the pattern creates the ribbing at the edge. If you work up 3-4 rows you will see the ribbing develop.
