DIY Crochet Beanie – Day 23 – Small Crochet Beanie

How to crochet a beanie?  In this tutorial, I show you how to crochet a beanie that is extra warm and comfy for hikers using two strands of yarn at the same time.  This beanie works quickly and shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes to complete.  The colors used in this pattern can easily be exchanged to fit whatever color scheme you like.   I personally like the bright orange color when I am hiking so I am sure to be spotted by hunters.  This would also be great for someone who walks or runs near a road.

This beanie is part of a series of beanies that I am creating to donate to my local homeless shelter.  The goal is to complete 100 beanies in 100 days, all using unique patterns that I am going to share with you each day. 

Stitches used in this pattern (and their corresponding tutorials):

Magic Circle (MC):
Double Crochet (DC):
Single Crochet (SC):
Slip stitch (SL st):

Small Runner Beanie Crochet Pattern:

Crochet Hook: K / 10.5 / 6.5 MM
Yarn: 4 Medium ~ 2 Strands ~ Big Twist Value brand (any yarn will work for this pattern)
Create a brim that is 25 st deep and roughly 18’’ wide. Connect the two edges of the brim with SL stitches. Section off the brim into four even sections using scrap pieces of yarn or st markers. Note: for this entire pattern, we will be treating the two strands of yarn like they are one, crocheting them simultaneously.
Magic Circle
Row 1: 12 DC inside MC.
Row 2: Following continuous loop pattern (we won’t be starting or stopping each individual row, but it will act as more of a spiral), place 1 DC + 1 FRONT POST st in every st in the row (24 total st at end of row).
Row 3: *1 DC in st 1, 1 DC + 1 FRONT POST st in st 2.* Repeat * around the row (36 total st at end of row).
Row 4: Follow like stitches, so for every DC st, place 1 DC, for every FRONT POST st, place 1 FRONT POST.  
Rows 5- 12: Repeat Row 4.
Row 13: Place 1 SC in each st in the row.
Rows 14 – 19: Repeat Row 13.
Place 1 SL st in the next 10 st.
Cut and tie off yarn.  Hide tail by weaving it in the same direction that you were crocheting in, then up the inside of the beanie.
