The Easy Ribbed Beanie Crochet Pattern uses a simple beanie method and is quick to work up. I love that this design uses a basic, top-down method with no sewing or difficult increases.
This hat is the 6th pattern in the Crochet Along for a Cause. We are making 1 hat per week to donate to a cancer center, school, or homeless shelter for 12 weeks. There’s always time to join! You can find all the details and hat patterns HERE.

Thank you so much for sharing your patterns for the Crochet Along for A Cause. I have made beanies in the past for a non-profit that helps kids who age out of the Adoption program. This year, I have been working on beanies to give to the local women’s refuge for homeless women. This works perfectly into what I have been working on this year.
Thank you so much for the variety of beanies, so they aren’t all cookie cutter beanies that are offered.
That’s great! Thank you 🙂
Thank you for the pattern. I have been making hats for the homeless center.
That’s great! Thank you!
The Berry Beanie was so fun to make and looks great. I’ll be making many more and donating them to a variety of organizations. Thank you so much.
Yay! Thank you so much!
Newbie here. Round 7 – I must be doing something wrong. When laid flat—It’s starting to take on the form of a doily with ruffles. Help!
Hi! Do you have the correct amount of stitches? It sounds like it’s too loose. If your stitch counts are correct, you can try going down a hook size 🙂
I’m using an “I” hook and counted round 6 twice. Maybe round 7. is where I’m off. Okay, I’ll re-count round 7. Thanks Breann.
Another thing that might be happening is when you are alternating the fpdc and sc, make sure you aren’t placing a sc in the same stitch as your fpdc 🙂
Ohhhhhhhhh yeah…that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. I looked for a video tutorial but haven’t found one similar or that uses these two stitches. Thanks again!
Our church is going to be crocheting caps for children undergoing chemo. Is there a way to adapt your patterns so they would be children’s sizes? Love your patterns but our local charity specifically asked for children’s sizes.
Hi! Sure! You can take out 2 increase rounds. So skip rounds 5 & 6, then move to round 7 🙂
