Crochet Beanie FREE Pattern

Pin it now, make later!

Crochet Beanies are among my favourite projects to make because they are so quick and easy…and quick and easy crochet is my favourite kind of crochet!

This crochet beanie is the final installment of the Truly range of patterns I’ve created.

The Truly beanie is the perfect companion to the Truly Wrist Warmers. This pattern is suitable for beginners and you will be surprised at just how easy they are to make. I have chosen to use this gorgeous Indie Dyed yarn, but you could substitute with any Aran weight yarn and play around with colours for individuality.

Indie Dyed Skeins

Indie dyed yarn can sometimes be intimidating, but they really don’t have to be. I made a little video showing how I prepare my skeins which you can see below.

If you’d like to explore some more Indie Yarn Dyers, take a look at this Directory which was built on our readers recommendations.

Pattern Notes

Chain 1 does NOT count as stitch unless otherwise stated.

When working you slip stitches in the brim, ensure your stitches aren’t too tight as this will make working into the following row difficult.

The beanie is worked from the bottom up.

When changing colour, this will be done when joining to the first stitch with a slip stitch. Insert hook to join and pull through new colour.

The none working yarn will carried up the work. Please do not fasten off your yarn unless stated.
