Learn to crochet this quick and easy crochet basketweave beanie. This pattern is quick and easy to make and a perfect pattern to follow along in front of the tv.
I recently made the Crochet Basketweave Sweater and you guys absolutely loved it so I thought to myself why not make a matching hat. I must say this hat is quickly becoming one of my favourite hats (so far!). The textured stitch reminds me of the knit basketweave stitch, wouldn’t you agree?!
This written pattern is accompanied with a step by step video tutorial. Scroll down to check it out!
The hat is worked from the bottom up. Firstly we begin crocheting the bottom ribbed band, then slip stitch the two ends to create a circle. We then crochet along the edge of the ribbing and work in rounds until we are satisfied with the height of the beanie. At the end we just weave the long tail through each stitch, pull tail tight, secure with a stitch or two and we are finished.
The yarn I used to make this beanie was Red Heart Soft. This was my first time using this yarn and I must say I absolutely love it. When they say soft, they literally mean soft!
It comes in a huge variety of colors so I’m sure their is a shade for everyone. The yarn is acrylic weight 4 yarn but it’s a very soft acrylic. You can however use any yarn you like but please keep in mind of the stitch multiples stated in the pattern.
I designed this hat to fit an adult sized hat. The stitch count I give is only a guide and depends on the yarn you use as well as your tension. To make other sizes I would suggest you crochet the ribbed band until it is long enough to go around your head, a child’s head, a baby’s head, whoever it is for, but keep in mind that the stitch count of the main body of the hat is in multiples of 6.
So yes, you can use any weight yarn or hook as long as you stick to the above information.
