How to Crochet a BeanieBy Rachel Choi – 89 Comments
|To crochet a beanie there are many different crochet patterns that you can learn. The basic idea is to start from the top of the beanie by crocheting multiple stitches into a circular shape. Then the number of stitches is slowly increased each time you crochet around the circle to form the shape of the beanie. Once the crocheted beanie is as wide as you want it, keep crocheting without increasing the width. Continue to crochet in circles around the rim of your beanie until it is the length that you desire.|
It is very easy to learn how to crochet a beanie using basic crochet stitches and patterns. Here is a free easy crochet pattern of a beanie to help you get started.

If you find that the crochet beanie pattern is too big or too small, feel free to make alterations as needed by increasing or decreasing the number of crochet stitches in each round or changing the number of rounds. You may also like to change colors in each round to make stripes or use a different crochet stitch to give your beanie a different look, such as a double crochet stitched beanie.
