Easy All HDC Beanie Crochet Pattern (Crochet Along for a Cause)

August 31, 2018

The Easy All HDC Beanie Crochet Pattern is just that… easy & all HDC! I think half double crochet is my favorite basic stitch. There are just so many ways you can make it textured and interesting. For this beanie I used the hdc in the 3rd loop (just like the Textured Stripe Beanie) to create the textured brim.

EASY ALL HDC BEANIE

This hat is made in the round and are not joined at the end of each round (I like using this method with half double crochet because the join likes to go sideways)

Starting with main color, make a magic ring

Round 1: ch 1, hdc 10 in ring, pull ring closed tight

Remember not to join. Continue the next round working in the first stitch of round 1. You will be working in a spiral. Put your stitch marker in the first hdc of the next round

Round 2: 2 hdc in each stitch around (20 hdc)

Again, do not join. Move your stitch marker to the first hdc of round 3

Round 3: *hdc in 1, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around (30 hdc)

Round 4: *hdc in 2, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around (40 hdc)

Round 5: *hdc in 3, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around (50 hdc)

Round 6: *hdc in 4, 2 hdc in next* repeat from * to * around, (60 hdc)

Diameter of the circle should be approximately 6” (I know this seems small for an adult hat, but hdc doesn’t tighten up as much as other stitches)

Round 7 – 16: hdc in each stitch around (60 hdc)

Change to brim color

Round 17: hdc in each stitch around (60 hdc)

Round 18 – 21: hdc in 3rd loop in each stitch around (60 hdc)

Change to main color

Round 22: hdc in 3rd loop in each stitch around (60 hdc)

Sc in next, sl st in next 2.

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

You’re done!!
