Hi there! Today, I have an updated beanie tutorial video and pattern for you! My original video is 4 years old and was in need of an update – (um hello I used dark yarn in the video) because even though it is a top video, I am much better at tutorials now. I also went a little slower, so that my beginners can tackle this and feel confident to accomplish it!
Enter your email to download the PDF! This file also includes my beanie hat sizing chart.
I used Red Heart with Love Yarn but you can use a worsted weight yarn of your choice and it will give you a similar size. Refer to the sizing chart below if you use a different yarn so you can make sure your sizing works out.
I used a J-10 (6mm) hook.
