When making this beanie I was wanting to design a hat that would be easy to throw on when going out to shovel the sidewalk or to sweep off the car after a snowy night. I wanted this hat to be wearable by not only me, but also my husband and my step son.. the EveryBeanie. This hat has been tested and approved by my 10 year old son, Brennan, my husband, Chad, and myself 🙂 And believe it or not, the hat didn't look too bad folded up on my toddler either! The sizing is perfect for sizes tween through adult.
Medium-Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart Love)
Crochet needle (just for weaving in ends)
5.5 mm hook
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
Tip: If you would like this beanie to be long enough to fold above the eyes, add an additional 4-6 rows.

SO, i’VE DOWNLOADED THE TOOL BAR, NOW HOW DO i PRINT OFF THE PATTERNS? Is this a hoax?
I do not have a tool bar. If you want the pdf version click “PDF” that is located next to the “PRINT” At the bottom of the post.

Thank you so much. I had clicked on the wrong button.

I enjoyed your Website and wanted to thank you for the pattern.I am working on a hat for my grand-son now.I am just whipping it up and wanted to look at patterns.Thank you again,Sandy Widenhouse/AllTypesOfCrafts.com
Thanks for coming and using Stitch11 patterns! Hope your grandson loves the hat as much as my son. It was meant for all of us but he claimed it right away <3
Excellent, excellent, excellent pattern! I have been looking for an earflap pattern when I decided to look for a beanie and just add the flaps. This by far is the best beanie pattern I have found. It works out perfectly every time!
There is no “PDF” next to the “PRINT!” It says “cleanprint.” How do I get a PDF?
Use the clean print option… there should be a pdf option once you select it.
I really loved the beanie that came out with this pattern! But I have a question: is there any way to make it larger in size for people with a larger head in width? It was kind of small for me, but it fit my mom well so I gave it to her.
I would add another increase round. Glad it fit your mom well!
What do you think would be the best way to decrease the size for toddler and child? I’ve used many hat patterns,and this is the best by far! Thanks
Hmm, Maybe try to eliminate that last increase round?
I love this pattern, it works up really quick . I’ve made 4 this week, working on #5. Thanks for this and other patterns you have shared .
I have made quite a few beanies for my son and myself and this is the very best pattern, particulary how it hides the join line. Since we seem to have big heads I added an increase line after row 8 that included 2 HDC in the first stitch and 1 HDC in the next 5 stitches repeated around. It worked out perfectly with 70 stitches in each row. Thank you so much for sharing! I will be making more 🙂

Fun pattern, although I’ve seen this same pattern in many places all over the internet. Definitely versatile and easy to do, but nothing new.
Can you give me a few websites with this patterrn. I can’t get this printed.
Use the print friendly button towards the bottom of the pattern. If that doesn’t work for you, you could press the keys CTRL and P.
