BASIC CROCHET BEANIE FOR BEGINNERS

Make a magic circle

Round 1: ch 2, 12 dc into circle, pull circle closed tight, join to first dc with sl st (12 dc)

Round 2: ch 2, 2 dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st (24 dc)

Round 3: ch 2, *dc in 1 stitch, 2 dc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st (36 dc)

Round 4: ch 2, *dc in 2 stitches, 2 dc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st (48 dc)

Round 5: ch 2, *dc in 3 stitches, 2 dc in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st (60 dc)

Stop here to measure the diameter of your circle. It should be about 6.5 – 7 inches in diameter.

At this point we will stop increasing the circle. There will be just 1 dc in each stitch around for the remaining rounds of the beanie.

Round 6 – 15: ch 2, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st (60 dc)

Fasten off, weave in your ends.

And you’re done! I hope this tutorial was helpful for you!
