This black beanie has a classic design, but is made a little differently than your typical crocheted hat. It’s worked as a rectangle and then sewn into a hat. There’s a little bit of ribbing to add some subtle texture and the double brim will help keep ears extra warm.
Caron Simply Soft in Black
Pattern notes & stitches to know
Ch – chain
Hdc – half double crochet
Hdc blo – half double crochet back loop only
Sc – single crochet
Ch 1 at beginning of each row does not count as hdc
9.5” across the brim
9” long (not including pom pom)
Row 1: hdc in 2nd ch from the hook and across (45 hdc)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, hdc in each stitch across (45 hdc blo)
Repeat row 2 to row 43 (or until the rectangle is approximately 17.5 inches long)
Lay out the rectangle so the rows are running vertically and then fold in half from left to right
Sc both ends together. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing. Using your yarn needle and the long end, weave the long tail in and out around the top of the hat, cinch it closed. Weave in all your ends, turn hat rightside out so the seam is on the inside.
Fold the bottom up so the hat is about 9 inches long. I used stitch markers to keep the brim in place. Using a piece of yarn twice the circumference of the hat and the yarn needle, whipstitch the brim to the hat. Fasten off, weave in all your ends. Add a pom pom!
