The Heath Beanie (Free Crochet Pattern)

by - November 15, 2018


Good day, fellow crafters!

I hope you're all staying cozy!  It's really getting cold up here in the Pacific Northwest.  Thankfully, crocheting helps mitigate that problem because there's so many awesome yarn projects to make and keep one warm during these freeeezing months!

Today, I'm sharing a very quick, easy, and beginner-friendly hat pattern that I whipped up when my husband requested a crocheted beanie!  The one I made for him last year had a big hole on top (it was a "messy bun hat") because my husband sported a hipster man-bun at that time.  Well, the man-bun's gone now, and he's back to wearing his usual hairstyle -- short!  Thus, that calls for a new, hole-less hat!

I wanted the design to appear simple, but have a brim that stands out from the body of the beanie.  With use of some basic crochet stitches, I think I've accomplished it!
