Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern
Holiday season is rolling around. You’re probably excited to start working on a bunch of crochet projects for friends and family. Stitch 11 has a ton of fun gift ideas but I’ve been really excited for the Beanie Hat.
This crochet hat is perfect for so many reasons. It’s made using a beautiful daisy stitch with a pom pom on top. And it has a ribbed trim around the bottom which makes it nice and stretchy to help fit any sized head. If you enjoy working with a variety of crochet stitches, I highly recommend the Ultimate Crochet Stitch Library which includes 45 professionally filmed stitch tutorials.
The beanie is worked using a 100% merino wool yarn in a beautiful silver color. This shade is so stunning. It’s subtle and fun and perfect for men or women.
The Cascade 220 Superwash Merino yarn is so warm and durable. It’s machine washable so you could wear it on a fall hayride or on the ski slopes this winter. It would make a perfect stocking stuffer or a fun secret Santa gift.

Fold hat in half, right side facing in, and sew together from ribbing to top of beanie. Turn hat right side out. Cut a 24” piece of yarn. Using the needle with the yarn in it, weave the yarn in and out of the top edge of the hat all the way around (every few stitches) until you’re around the entire top. Cinch the two ends of the yarn together so that the top edge of the hat all comes together. When you’ve got it pulled as tight as you can, knot the yarn together and weave the yarn ends into the hat.
Wrap yarn around a 7” piece of cardboard 70 times. Tie a piece of yarn tightly around the middle. Trim sides of pom pom to liking and attach at the top of the hat. Weave in all ends.
This crochet beanie project is a modern and bold Christmas present for someone challenging to shop for. It’s a warm and thoughtful stocking stuffer for a loved one or a fun hat for outdoor winter festivities.
The crochet beanie hat is so versatile and truly special. Whoever you decide to give it to will be so blown away with your originality and impressive stitch work.
