Hello, everyone! I had a bit of time of myself this past weekend. Granted, I was sick, but even sick time to yourself is rare when you are a mom of two tiny humans. So, I worked up a new hat pattern.
Honestly, the stitches used in this hat are simple, and have probably been put together in many different ways, or even this same exact way. I apologize if it looks exactly like any other patterns out there, I promise I just “winged” it myself while feeling pitiful in bed.
So, here is my V-Stitch Crochet Beanie Pattern!
What you’ll need:
- Tapestry Needle
- H Hook
- Yarn in two different colors (I used Stitch Studio by Nicole which is a light weight 3 (DK) yarn)
- Chain 9
- DC in 2nd ch from hook (counts as first DC). 1 DC in each of the next 7 chain spaces (8 total DC Stitches)
- CH2 – Turn – 1 DC in BLO in each stitch (8)
- Repeat step 3 until desired length. (Make sure you end with an even number of rows. I did 44 rows and the hat fits a little lose, but nice, on my 4 year old, and fits a little tight on me, but you can always refer to a hat sizing chart and measure as you go!)
- Once desired length is met, slip stitch the two ends together to form a circle for the hat band.
- Weave in ends.
- Slip stitch into the ribbed band, chain 1, SC across the top of the band. Slip stitch into chain 1.
- Chain 3 and DC in same stitch (This counts as first V-Stitch). *Skip the next stitch. 1DC, ch 1, 1DC in next stitch.* *Repeat to end and slip stitch into 2nd chain from chain 3 in beginning.
- Repeat the previous step, with V-stitches always in the chain 1 spaces from the previous rounds, until hat reaches desired length. (I did 18 rows).
- Close the top of hat and add a pom pom, or not. It looks great either way!
- If you need help on how to close the top of a hat, I found this tutorial VERY helpful! I did not know this process on the blue and pink hat, but used it on the mint and purple, and I like the look of the mint and purple so much more! I tried this method both with a hook, and with a tapestry needle. There is no difference in the finished appearance, so try them both and see which is easiest for you!
I hope you enjoy making some cute v-stitch beanies! Please feel free to sell anything you make with this pattern!
