The simplest type of crochet/knit hat, the beanie is a brimless hat that fits closely to the head. The finished circumference will be smaller than your actual head measurement, so the beanie stretches.
If this is a hat for you, give it a try on your head after a few rows, because you could crochet tighter or looser than me, you may want to make sure it’s a good fit before you finish the entire beanie.
The final dimensions of my crochet hat: circumference 51 cm/ 21 inches; hat height: 19 cm/ 7.5 inches;
Gauge for the houndstooth stitch:  18 stitches and 16 rows to 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 inches).
The final dimensions of the Crochet Cable part: 51 cm/ 20 inches long and 8 cm/ 3 inches width.

How to measure your head for your hat:

 

head measure for hats

To measure your head for a hat, use a tape measure placed across the forehead and measure around the circumference of the head. The measuring tape should be snug to get an accurate value. To determine the hat height, place the measuring tape at the top of the crown and measure to the desired length.

 

 

 

 

First, we crochet the double crochet cable. For that you need to know how to crochet the front post double crochet stitch and the back post double crochet stitch: 

How to crochet the front post double crochet stitch:

  1. Yarn over, insert hook from the front around the steam of the stitch in the row below from right to left, draw loop through, now you have 3 loops on the hook.
  2. Yarn over and draw the yarn through two loops, now you have two loops on the hook.
  3. To finish the stitch yarn over and draw the yarn through both loops on the hook.

Repeat from step 1 to continue crocheting front post double crochet stitches.

How to crochet the back post double crochet stitch:

  1. Yarn over, insert hook from the back around the steam of the stitch in the row below from right to left, draw loop through, now you have 3 loops on the hook.
  2. Yarn over and draw the yarn through two loops, now you have two loops on the hook.
  3. To finish the stitch Yarn over and draw the yarn through both loops on the hook.

Repeat from step 1 to continue crocheting back post double crochet stitches.

The final dimensions of my Crochet Cable : 51 cm/ 20 inches long and 8 cm/ 3 inches width.

Feel free to wrap it around your head to ensure the size feels correct.

The pattern for the Crochet Cable:

Start with 19 chains.
1. Row 1: make a dc in the 3rd chain from the hook and continue crocheting double crochet in every chain until the end of the row.
2. Row 2: ch 2 (count as a double crochet stitch), bpdc in every stitch until the end of the row except the last stitch where you’ll crochet double crochet. You should have 18 stitches.
3. Row 3: ch 2 (count as a double crochet stitch), skip 4 stitches, and crochet fpdc in every next 4 stitches. Next crochet fpdc in every skipped stitch in the behind of the stitches you’ve just crocheted. Next skip 4 stitches and crochet fpdc in every next 4 stitches and continue to crochet fpdc in every skipped stitch in front of the stitches you just crocheted. Make a double crochet stitch in the last stitch of the row.
4. Row 4: ch 2 (count as a double crochet stitch), bpdc in every next stitch until the end of the row. You need to be careful how you crochet these stitches: crochet the first four bpdc in the last 4 fpdc you’ve crocheted in the previous row; the next 8 bpdc are crocheted in the stitches facing you and the last four bpdc are crocheted in the first fpdc you’ve crocheted in the previous row. Double crochet in the last stitch to finish the row.
5. Row 5: ch 2 (count as a double crochet stitch), fpdc in every stitch until the end of the row except the last stitch where you’ll crochet double crochet. You should have 18 stitches.
6. Row 6: ch 2 (count as a double crochet stitch), bpdc in every stitch until the end of the row except the last stitch where you’ll crochet double crochet. You should have 18 stitches.
Repeat the pattern from row 3 until you have the length you need. My crochet cable has 78 rows. After you finish the last row you’ll need to crochet a round of single crochet.
Please watch the video tutorial and try to crochet the cables while you are watching. In the video tutorial, you’ll see how you need to make the single crochet edge too. If it’s the first time you are making them it might seem difficult. But practicing and being careful where every stitch goes you will see that actually is not that hard to crochet cables.
The video tutorial for the cable:

 

The chart for the cable:

After you finish crocheting the cable don’t cut the yarn and crochet single crochet stitches around the cable and then join together the two short edges crocheting single crochet through both edges. Don’t cut the yarn and crochet one more round of single crochet on the side you have the yarn. Crochet all the rounds of single crochet on the right side. Cut the yarn and start to crochet the body (rise) of the hat.

Although it’s perfectly satisfactory to wear your hat as soon as it is finished. Blocking will smooth out the stitches and improve the look and feel of the fabric. If you plan to make several hats, you will find it easier to block most types on a head form. These are available in many online stores and are made of wood, wire, or styrofoam. You can also use an inverted bowl or a balloon to make a spherical shape for blocking a hat. Tams and berets can be blocked on a dinner plate. Hats also can be blocked flat on a blocking mat or flat surface covered by a colorfast towel.

You can wet block your hat by immersing it in lukewarm water and a little wool wash for about 20 minutes or until it is thoroughly wet. Place it on a colorfast towel and carefully press out the excess water without wringing the hat. Place the damp hat on the head form, bowl, or balloon. For a beret, place the wet hat on a dinner plate. Allow your hat to dry completely before removing it.

You can also steam block your hat after placing it on a head form, plate, or balloon. Steam it lightly with a steam iron or steamer held about 5 cm/ 2 inches above the hat. Do not press the hat or the stitches will be flattened. Acrylic and other synthetic yarns should not be steam blocked.
