The Perfect Knit-Look Crochet Beanie FREE Pattern

Hey there maker friends. How are you?

Today, I am excited to be sharing my Tayrn Beanie, a knit-look crochet beanie, pattern with you! If you’ve been around OneLittleHook for a while you may know that I’m rather fond of knit-look crochet. You may even recognize the stitch pattern in this beanie as the same one used in my Tristan Beanie. The Taryn beanie is worked with a DK weight yarn instead of Bulky and it has a different brim style. I hope you enjoy crocheting it as much as I did.

Pattern Notes

  • Chains do not count as stitches.
  • Beanie is worked as a rectangle and then seamed together.
  • Beanie is a non-slouchy style.
  • You can customize the height of the beanie by subtracting or adding any number of stitches to your starting chain.
  • You can customize the width/circumference of the beanie by subtracting or adding repeats of row 2 and 3. This beanie has approx. 2 inches of stretch so when customizing width be sure to work up until your rectangle is 2 inches shorter than the head circumference measurement.

Seaming

Fold the short edges (foundation chain and Row 71) of the beaning together with wrong side out.

Seam the short edges together to form a tube. Ch 1. Flip hat right side out.

Work 70 SC around the top edge of the beanie.

Continue working in a spiral (in the round without a join/Ch step). Work a round of SC2TOG. Sl St join to the next st.

Cut yarn leaving a long tail for closing up the top of the hat and fasten off. Weave the long tail through the top of the SC2TOG Pull to tighten. Knot to secure. Weave in all ends.
