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