The Season’s Switch Beanie Crochet Pattern

The snow really got to me last week.  After having beautifully mild weather for weeks, a sudden drop to 26 degrees overnight, with snow, was a bit too much for my fragile, cold natured body.  So, that night I grabbed the “Springy-est” colors I could find, and started this hat.  I had no idea where I was going, but I really like where I ended up!

  • If you’d like to purchase the PDF for this pattern, it is available HERE in my Etsy shop!  I sell the PDF as a way of making just a tiny bit of money while I am a stay at home mom.  The PDF is downloadable, printable, and a lot less wordy and picture-y than my blog post!

The Pattern:
Gauge:
Band = 2.25″
2 Dc3tog Rows = 1″
3 scblo rows = .75″
11 scblo rows = 3.25″
My final hat measured 8.25″

Start with making your band.  
Row 1 – chain 12, sc in first ch from hook, 1sc in each ch st across (11)
Row 2 – ch 1, turn, scblo in each st across (11)
Row 3 – Repeat row 2 until you reach your desired band length for your project.  Be sure that it has an even amount of rows.
Once you’ve got your desired band length, slst the ends of the band together, and flip band so that the join bump is on the inside. Do not cut yarn unless you plan on changing colors (you be as creative as you want!)

Hat Body: Chain 1 counts as first sc, Chain 2 does NOT count as first st.
Row 1 – ch 1 (counts as first st), sc in each band row across, slst to join to ch 1

A finished beanie!

Leaving a tail, cut yarn.  Use yarn to weave yarn through the front loops of each remaining st.  Pull tight to close hole, and weave end in tightly.
