Beginner-Friendly Crochet Beanie Pattern

Crochet Hook: K/6.5MM
Yarn: Buttercream Luxe 100% Roving Wool,  115 yds, Size 5 Bulky

Attach yarn to crochet hook using a Magic Circle (MC).

Row 1: CH 2 and place 12 DC inside MC.

Row 2: Diving directly into 1st DC st, place 2 DC.  Then place 2 DC in each st in the row.  Since this is a spiral pattern, I recommend marking the 1st st of the row with a scrap piece of yarn or st marker (24 total DC st).

Row 3: *1 DC in st 1, 2 DC in st 2.* Repeat * around the row (36 total DC st).

Row 4: *1 DC in st 1 – 2, 2 DC in st 3.* Repeat * around the row (48 total DC st).

Row 5: *1 DC in st 1 – 3, 2 DC in st 4.* Repeat * around the row (60 total DC st).

Rows 6 – 12: Place 1 DC in each st in each row.

Row 13: *1 DC in st 1 – 3, DC 2together in st 4 & 5.* Repeat * around the row (48 total DC st).

Rows 14 – 18: Place 1 SC in each st in each row, until you have about 18 inches of yarn remaining in the skein.

Finish off by placing 1 SL st in the next 5 st, then tie off yarn and hide it on the inside of the beanie.
