I just realized I can post the full pattern here! hehe

I have included the UK stitch version below for those who may need it.

 

Basic HDC Beanie

This is a basic beanie pattern I came up with several years ago; perfect pattern for a beginner. If you’d like a smaller or larger size beanie, just change the hook size.

 

 

 

Materials

 

Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton or other Aran weight yarn - Approx. 140 m./153 yds.

 

G hook – 4.5mm/Small

 

H hook – 5.0mm/Regular

 

I hook – 5.5mm/Large

 

Yarn needle for weaving in ends

 

Finished Measurements

 

Small

 

G hook – 20-21 inch circumference

 

7 1/2 inches from crown to rim edge

 

Regular

 

H hook – 22-23 inch circumference

 

8 inches from crown to rim edge

 

Large

 

I hook – 23-24 inch circumference

 

8 1/2 inches from crown to rim edge

 

Gauge

 

6 hdc’s/htr’s and 5 rows = 2 inches.

 

Pattern Notes

 

*No turning after rows.

 

*To end refers to directions between **.

 

*Ch 1 at beginning of row does not count as a stitch throughout the pattern, it serves to reduce a visible seam.

 

*Crochet this hat using 1 strand of Aran weight yarn, or 2 strands DK weight.

I love the way Hobbyzu's hat turned out. Mine doesnt seem to be as nice looking, especially the bill of the hat. Mine looks a lot shorter than hers. I like the pattern a lot, but I think I might tweak it a bit on the next one so that it's a little bit longer to cover the top of my ears and make the bill longer.

It looks great! :-)

Definitely tweaking is in order. It's always good to make a pattern your own, because what works for one person may not work for another. :-)

You're right! I just edited the pattern a bit to let everyone know where they can add an extra row if desired. :-)

I like this, it's working up really fast! I won't be adding the peak/bill, and it will be longer, but it was a dream to make! :crocheting as I post!
