Well, I realized the other day that I have created a bunch of beginner crochet beanie videos, so I thought it would be cool to put them all on one post so you can take a look at which one my be best for you! I’m going to put them in order of most recent, you can click the photo to go to the post with the written instructions, materials and video tutorial.
Are crochet beanies for absolute beginners?
If you are an absolute beginner, I recommend a washcloth or a scarf before a hat to get used to the muscle memory of crochet and learn the basic stitches. I have a beginner class coming soon, but until then you can check out this washcloth or this scarf to get you started. Once you have made a few things, then I would say to make the Granny Cluster hat first because there is no increasing your stitches ;).
The Granny Cluster Hat
– Great beginner beanie featuring lots of options for different yarn on the post.
–Same construction as Granny Cluster Hat above, so also great for new hat makers.
-a great first hat for crocheting in the round
Slightly Slouchy Crochet Hat
-Simple and straightforward but need to check measurements for sizing to make sure you are on track.
Toddler Simple Crochet Beanie
– same pattern as the yellow hat above, but toddler size.
Not a Beginner Crochet Beanie, but close!
Loom Knit Hat
Messy Bun Beanie
-not quite a beginner crochet beanie, but very close for my messy bun loving girls out there!
I hope this is helpful to see all of my hat projects in one spot! Should I do a round up post for all of my blanket patterns too?
