How to Crochet a Beanie – Beginner Tutorial

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi there!  Today, I have an updated crochet beanie pattern and tutorial video and pattern for you! My original how to crochet a beanie 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!  Learn how to crochet a beanie!

How to Crochet a Beanie

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.

This beanie is a simple classic beanie. 

I used a J-10 (6mm) hook.

Here is Part 1 of the Video Tutorial 😉

Notes

To achieve the best result, measuring the head is best. Measure the circumference (above the ears and across the forehead right above the eyebrows). Also measure from the top of the head down to the eyebrows or the height of the hat.

This chart is best with a worsted weight yarn and I-9 (5.5mm) or J-10 (6mm) hook.
