Favorite Crochet Cat Beanie Patterns
Crochet beanies are easy to make and will keep you warm all winter long! Crocheting a hat is not only fun, but it can also be very rewarding – especially when you find a fun new pattern to try.
In this post, I’ve curated a list of free hat crochet patterns that I know you’ll love. I selected these particular patterns because they are some of my favorite crochet beanie patterns. In fact, I’ve made a few of them myself!
All these crochet beanie patterns are suitable for beginner crocheters and use the basic crochet stitches. If you are not familiar with some crochet stitches, then here might be a great place to start.
Some crochet patterns will even include links to free crochet videos that show you how to crochet each stitch. They are quick to crochet, too – making these crochet hats a great weekend project for you crocheters out there.

Best Yarn For Crochet Beanies
To crochet these beanie hat patterns, you’ll need some yarn. The crochet hat patterns in this list use a range of yarn weights, from fingering weight to super-bulky weight yarn.
When shopping for yarn, I like to look for soft acrylic yarn or washable wool-blend yarn. Some of my favourite acrylic yarns are Bernat Super Value yarn , Caron Simply Soft Yarn and Starlette yarn.
My Favorite Crochet Hooks
And, of course, you’ll need a crochet hook. My favourite crochet hooks are ergonomic crochet hooks from Furls. They are suitable for beginners, and are very easy to use.
I also love these aluminum ergo 12 set from MW Wright. I find them very comfortable and easy to work with!
How to Measure for Crochet Hat Patterns
Are you giving a crochet hat or beanie as a gift? You’ll need to know what size to make before you start crocheting.
If at all possible, it’s best to measure the circumference of the intended recipient’s head. Then, you can reference the pattern to figure out what size to make.
Depending on the pattern, you may be able to adjust the length or “slouchiness” of your beanie.
For more sizing information, please read the crochet hat size chart below. (This chart references the Craft Yarn Council’s industry guidelines for pattern designers.)
|Preemie||9–12 in (23–30.5 cm)|
|Baby||14–16 in (35.5–40.5 cm)|
