Reversible Crochet Beanie

Hey there maker friends. How are you?

Today, I am excited to be sharing my Reversible Crochet Beanie pattern. This simple and fun pattern has 2 slightly different looks on each side, uses the mattress stitch to seam the beanie and an ultimate finish inspired top closure which gives it a truly reversible look.

Pattern Notes

  • Turning chains do not count as stitches.
  • Beanie is crocheted as a rectangle, then seamed to finish.
  • In this project, rows that are slightly slanting is normal. The beanie panel will need to be blocked into a rectangle before seaming.
  • You can customize the circumference by adding or removing the Repeat Rows.
  • You can customize the height of the beanie by chaining a different multiple of 2. If customizing the height, the brim portion will remain 7 sts. The stitch count on the top of the beanie will change based on the number of foundation chains.
