Crochet Beanie Free Pattern
For the tutorial, i made a womans size small. So remember the crochet beanie pattern follows a multiple of 12, i chained 60. For the adult woman or man crochet beanie size, chain 72 or more.
Ch multiples of 12
60 for adult small, 72 for adult size etc…
Ch72 (for a adult woman)and join to two ends. A little trick i learned, chain 15, then enter the end of the crochet hook into the first ch you made. This helps keep the ch straight and away from bending, because at the end, you will just slst into the first ch you made and begin your crochet beanie.
Row 1: Ch2 make a dc in every st in the back loops., slst into the first st you made.
Row 2: Ch2, *(2fpdc+1bpdc)**
Repeat row 2 for 4 (or more) extra rows, or less. This will serve as the crochet beanie band.
Row 7: Ch2, 2fpdc+1hdc in the bpdc of previous row+2fpdc+2fpdc in the bpdc of previous row+*(2fpdc+1hdc+2fpdc+1hdc+2fpdc+1hdc+2fpdc+2pfdc in the bpdc of previous row)** You will finish the row7 with a hdc.
This is use setting the base for the cable stitches.
Row 8: Ch2, 2fpdc+1hdc+*(2fpdc+yarn over twice and skip 2st and insert your hook from the 3rd st and make a fptr, yarn over twice and make a fptr in the 4th st, yarn over twice and turn back to the 1st st front of the treples and make a fptr in the 1st st, yarnover twice and turn back to the 2nd st front of the treples and make a fptr in the 2nd st+1hdc+2fpdc+1hdc+2fpdc+1hdc)**
Row 9: Ch2, 2fpdc+1hdc+*(skip 2 st+yarn over twice and make a fptr in the 3rd st+yarn over twice and make afptr in the 4th st+yarn over twice and make a fptr in the 1st st behind from the treples +yarn over twice and make a fptr in the 2nd st behind from the treples +2fpdc+1hdc+2fpdc+1hdc+2fpdc+1hdc)**
Repeat Row 8 and Row 9 until your beanie size is 7 inches long. or up to your desired length.
