Best Yarn for Medium weight beanies

As you know we are focusing on medium weight beanies or category 4 weight yarn crochet beanies, we will only be dealing with a worsted weight yarn.

When shopping for yarn, I like to look for soft acrylic yarn or washable wool-blend yarn. Some of my favorite acrylic yarns are Caron simply soft yarn  and Pound of love yarn.

My Favorite Crochet Hooks

And, of course, you’ll need a crochet hook. My favorite crochet hooks are ergonomic crochet hooks from Furls. They are suitable for beginners, and are very easy to use.

We also love these beautiful wooden crochet hooks from Furls. We find them very comfortable and easy to work with!

How to Measure for Crochet Hat Patterns

Are you giving a medium weight beanie 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.
