How to Crochet a Beanie – Ribbed Beanie

How to crochet a beanie?  In this tutorial, I show you how to crochet a ribbed beanie using the HDC st that is extremely easy to follow.  This beanie is more time-consuming than it might seem, but it is great practice if you’re new to working with the half-double crochet stitch.  The colors used in this pattern can easily be exchanged to fit whatever color scheme you like.

Ribbed Beanie Crochet Pattern:

Crochet Hook: F / 5 / 3.75MM

Row 2: 1 HDC in the BACK BUMP of each st in the row, CH 1, turn.
Row 3: 1 HDC in the FRONT st of each st in the row, CH 1, turn.

  1. Crochet two short edges together using SL stitches to connect them.
  2. Cut and tie off yarn.
  3. Cut a strand of yarn roughly 1 foot long and weave it around the top of the beanie (this is where all of your tails are).
  4. Cinch the two tails of the strand of yarn and tie them together tightly (this should close the gap in the top of your beanie).
  5. Attach a pom pom:
