If you are looking for a quick hat pattern that is perfect for winter then beanie pattern is for you! I decided to name this latest design the Dreaming of Winter Crochet Beanie after my constant need to want to make all the things for the cool weather that inevitably happens every year here in Pennsylvania.
As a crocheter I am already dreaming of winter and all the hat patterns I can create with my ever-growing yarn stash. When the cool weather hits it gets me in the mood to buy all the yarn! Can you relate?
Read on down to find the FREE winter crochet beanie pattern and learn a bit about the yarn I used!
The Yarn For a Soft Crochet Beanie
This pattern is written to work well with Red Heart Soft yarn, which is true to its name and is very “soft” to work with. It has a nice flow over a hook and doesn’t get caught or snag (in my opinion).
It is a 100% acrylic yarn and easy to find in most local craft stores, Walmart and online. Let’s not forget about the 50+ colors and styles this yarn is available in which means you can truly make this hat your own.
You could use a different yarn if you prefer and get the same results as long as the weight and gauge is similar. I suggest trying Vanna’s Choice. by Lion Brand Yarn or Caron Simply Soft by Yarnspirations. Both are good choices and a good match as a substitution in terms of yarn weight.
If you’d like to take a look at this yarn in a bigger project I can help you there. I have used it in the past to make a blanket like my Simple Striped Blanket. This blanket has lasted years and my son still sleeps with every night because it is so soft!
Enjoy This Simple Winter Beanie!
This particular design has a lot of texture versus a typical hdc or dc beanie pattern which makes it a fun alternative to the norm. We will be using a front post double crochet (fpdc) mixed with double crochets to create a unique hat design that looks harder than it is to make. I promise you can do this! If you’d ilke some extra help with the fpdc I linked up a tutorial above.
That’s enough chit-chat! I hope you love the free Dreaming of Winter Crochet Beanie Pattern! Read on down for the free pattern and picture tutorial.
