crochet hat

If you want to crochet a beanie for beginners you can start with the Cozy Winter crochet hat. This free pattern is very easy to crochet, it only uses the single crochet stitch and the half double crochet stitch crocheted in two different ways: half double crochet in the back loop and the herringbone half double crochet stitch. Both stitches are textured and reversible and look gorgeous together!

What I love about this hat is that is very easy to adjust to fit any head, so if you are looking for how to crochet a beanie for all the family the Cozy Winter crochet hat is the perfect pattern. But I think this pattern will look very good if you want to crochet hats for women and men and children. So if you are looking for how to crochet a beanie, that is textured, easy, and quick to crochet, and warm for Christmas crochet gifts you definitely should try the Cozy winter crochet hat.

For my crochet hat I’ve used 100g 100% acrylic and 6 mm crochet hook.

pumpkin yarn

This 100% acrylic is really good quality, it’s a soft and lovely yarn and it’s so easy to work with. This soft yarn is suitable for lots of creative, colorful projects, it’s great to use for blankets, sweaters, hats, scarves, home décor, and accessories. This chunky yarn is a light and soft yarn that is comfortable to work with and wear. With the big, puffy 100 gram skeins you will quickly see results.  If you are allergic to wool, or if you want to opt-out of animal fibers for other reasons, you can easily replace it with this 100% acrylic yarn and get a soft and lovely result.

Before starting to crochet the Cozy Winter crochet hat lets learn how to crochet the herringbone half double crochet stitch:
The video tutorial for the stitch:

The written pattern for the herringbone half double crochet stitch:
  1. For this stitch, you can start with any number of chains.
  2. Crochet a herringbone half double crochet stitch starting with 3rd chain from the hook: yarn over, insert hook in 3rd chain, yarn over and pull the yarn through the chain and first loop on the hook; yarn over and draw the yarn through both loops on hook- this is the first stitch.
  3. For the next stitch: yarn over, insert hook in next chain, yarn over and pull the yarn through the chain and first loop on the hook; yarn over and draw the yarn through both loops on hook.
  4. Repeat step 3 to end of row.

The instructions for the Cozy Winter crochet hat:

The chart for the  Cozy Winter crochet hat:

The written pattern for the Cozy Winter crochet hat:

Leave a long tail and make 27 chains.

Row 1: in the 3rd chain from the hook crochet a half double crochet, continue to crochet 1 herringbone half double crochet in every next 21 chains; in the last 3 chains make 1 single crochet in every chain.

Row 2: ch 1 (don’t count as a stitch), 1 single crochet in every next 3 stitches. Continue to crochet 1 herringbone half double crochet in every next 21 chains; 1 half double crochet in the last stitch.

Row 3: ch 2 (don’t count as a stitch), 1 half double crochet in next stitch. Crochet 1 herringbone half double crochet in every next 21 stitches; crochet 1 single crochet in every next 3 stitches.

Repeat the pattern from row 2 until you have 49 rows.

After you finish the last row, don’t cut the yarn and join together the 2 edges. I’ve joined the edges crocheting single crochet through both edges. Then continue to crochet the cuff directly on the hat.

I’ve crocheted the cuff with half double crochet in the back loop, a reversible stitch because it will look good when you’ll fold it. In addition to being a design element, the cuff adds extra warmth.

The cuff:

Crochet 8 chains.

Row 1: hdc in the 2nd chain from the hook, crochet hdc in every chain until the end of the row. You should have 7 half double crochet stitches.

Row 2: ch1, *hdc in back loop in next stitch*, repeat *-* until the end of the row.

Repeat row 2 around the hat until you reach the first edge and join together the 2 edges.

For the top of the hat use the long tail and stitch a running stitch all the way around and pull to close the hole.

Tie off and weave in all your ends!

Leave the hat as is or add a trendy, faux-fur pom-pom! You can also make your own pom-pom. I think a big, giant pom-pom would look super cute on this hat.
