DIY Crochet Beanie – Day 16 – Chunky Yarn Beanie

How to crochet a beanie?  In this tutorial, I show you how to crochet a beanie using a chunky yarn beanie that is very simple to follow.  This beanie works quickly and shouldn’t take you more than 2 hours to complete.  The colors used in this pattern can easily be exchanged to fit whatever color scheme you like.   This pattern makes an extra warm beanie and is pretty slouchy.  If you would like it to be less slouchy, then reduce the number of beginning chain stitches to accommodate whatever head size you would like.

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.

Chunky Yarn Male 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)
Note: for this entire pattern, we will be treating the two strands of yarn like they are one, crocheting them simultaneously.
Attach yarn to crochet hook with SL st.
Row 1: CH 50, turn.
Row 2: 1 SL in BACK BUMP of each st in row (including st beside crochet hook).  CH 1, turn.
Rows 3 – ?: 1 SL in BACK LOOP ONLY of each st in the row.  CH 1, turn.
Once beanie reaches your desired width, secure the two short edges together by placing 1 SL st in each of the corresponding stitches, joining the two edges together as you do so.
Cut a strand of yarn roughly 2 feet in length and weave it along the top edge of your beanie, placing your weave about every inch to inch and a half.
Once you are done weaving along the top edge, pull the two strand ends together to cinch together the top of the beanie.
