The Yarn That’s Perfect for This Crochet Beanie

To make the Fiona I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Gray Marble (80% wool, 20% acrylic) which is one of my favorites! 

If you haven’t had the chance to work with this yarn, it is a super bulky and soft yarn that has a beautiful natural-looking tone to it.

You’ll love it! You can find it in a variety of colors so it definitely is a must-try! Check the WET&Q yarn out below.

Substitute Yarn: If you’d like to use a yarn that doesn’t contain wool I recommend using Hometown Yarn which is also from Lion Brand. It is 100% acrylic, a super bulky #6 weight and works up similar to WET&Q.

Great Beanie for Beginner Crocheters!

This hat is great for beginners who would like to try something a little harder but still pretty easy! I would recommend this hat to any level crocheter for sure because of the easy crochet stitches used.

Keep in mind the gauge when you are crocheting this hat. You’ll find that information in the pattern section below. If you crochet too tight, your hat will be small and if you crochet loosely, then the hat will be bigger than wanted.

My best advice is to stick as closely to the gauge as recommended, which sometimes means you’ll need to change the crochet hook size to get the gauge that is needed. Experiment with it and see what works best for you.

  1. I love this pattern. I used wool ease quick & thick in Secoya (brown). I found this at Ollie’s for $3 . I am making a scarf using these stitches. Really nice. Thank you!

  2. Hi!

    I’ve made my first last night exactly as called for and came out very small. So I pulled out last two rows, did two more rows of round 4 and then finished off again. Bottom was still WAY too tight. So I pulled those rows again and then re-did them with a bigger hook (11.5mm) and it’s still tight. This doesn’t say it’s for a child but that’s the only person it would fit. Even with me adding the two extra rows. How can I adequately make this tut for an adult?!? Please help! Thanks 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing your patterns. I am searching for a hat pattern to wear for my winter walking. If I wanted to make this hat for an adult sized head, would I just crochet more rows?
    Thanks again for sharing:)
