Crochet EASIEST Wool Beanie Pattern:

Yarn: 185 yds, 2-ply, Mother Nature’s Finest Fiber USA Alpaca Wool yarn (this is roughly the same as size 4 yarn).
Crochet hook: G / 6 / 4.25MM
*NOTE: this is a continuous loop pattern, which means that we won’t be starting or stopping each individual row, but instead, this should act like more of a spiral. I recommend using a scrap piece of yarn or stitch marker to mark the 1st st in every row.
Attach yarn to crochet hook using a Magic Circle.
Row 1: Place 12 DC inside MC.
Row 2: Place 2 DC in each st in the row (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 – 13: Place 1 DC in each st in each row.
Rows 14 – 46: Place 1 SC in each st in the row.
Finish off the beanie by placing 1 SL st in the next 10 st, then cut and tie off your yarn.  Weave the tail in the direction that you were crocheting.
