Pattern Description:

This is it! The Basic Beanie crochet pattern is perfect for making hats in any size! This pattern is great for beginners and can be completed in a short amount of time. Make perfect gifts for preemies, newborns, kids, teens or adults! This pattern is great for making charity hats.

Use your favorite worsted weight yarn in any color, or a variety of colors! It is warm enough for cool weather, without ever getting too hot. For colder climates, use a warmer yarn (wool or acrylic), for a warmer climate use a cooler yarn (lightweight worsted, cotton or bamboo). Easy to embellish with a button, flower, clip, etc.

Excellent Simple and effective  April 3, 2013

I used this pattern (and others) to make an assortment of crochet hats for a NICU. This was a simple quick-to-make well-written pattern. I used the premie size and varied my hook size to make different sizes of hats; the baby sizes were perfect for my daughters' dolls; and the adult size fits me snuggly. This pattern has had a LOT of use here!

Excellent Beginner's dream!  February 16, 2013

I used this for my 3rd ever crochet project, my first hat, and my first time following a "real" pattern. Super easy , even for a beginner, with clear instructions, and the sizing worked out great. I love that there's a premie size too - will be making some for our local NICU for sure. Thank you!
