My How to Crochet a Beanie for Beginners pattern and video include step by step instructions to assure success. For new crocheters making a whole hat may seem a little daunting. This tutorial is perfect for beginner crocheters and crocheters that need to brush up a little on their skills. With this step-by-step crochet video How to Crochet a Beanie for Beginners you can use time stamps to skip forward or go back as many times as you need to see the instruction again.
PRO TIP! If you are just starting to crochet – take a moment and watch the video all the way through. Rewind and watch over any parts you my struggle with before even picking up the hook. Once you are ready use your favourite yarn to create something beautiful for yourself or someone you love.
If you are a beginner be sure to watch and follow along with the video tutorial as I walk you step-by-step in making this basic crochet hat. Already great at crocheting? Scroll down to the bottom and enjoy the pattern.

Hat is worked in rounds top down.
Your hat can be lengthened to fit you perfectly. Just add more rounds after round 29 to make it exactly how you like it. I like mine to completely cover my ears!

Was wondering if you had an easy, beginner sock pattern. I’ve made four of your cowls & eight beginner beanies & the ponytail beanie. ALL came out fantastic. Thank you
I’m sorry I don’t 🙁 I have made crochet socks a few times and never found them comfortable. I wish I could knit 😉
I just made this beanie…..but mine does not taper in at the bottom as much….what did I do wrong?
I DID change the hook size…..
