Lickety Split Chunky Crochet Beanie
It's time for another free pattern! Now that it's cooling off, you'll need a beanie to keep your noggin warm!
If you don't have all day to crochet, don't worry, because these beanies whip up in less than an hour and are super easy to make - perfect for beginners!
N.B: Writing my patterns can be quite time consuming and I do my best to make sure they are clear, coherent and easy to follow. Since I provide them for free, I would appreciate it if you could please follow me on Instagram @slipstitch_hollow or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/slipstitchhollow. Or, you can sign up to my mailing list! By following me through these platforms, you will receive all updates about new patterns, items for sale, art installations and my undying gratitude! :)
You will need:
10mm crochet hook
Two strands of worsted/medium weight yarn (4)
This beanie will be made by tying two strands of yarn to your hook at once. By doing this, you cut down on time and your beanie will be made much faster!
Alternatively, you can use chunky yarn (6) instead of two strands, if you're worried about your yarn getting tangled (a very real concern).
Let's get crocheting!
Row 1: In the fourth chain from hook, 11dc. Slip stitch to the first dc to join (11dc)
Row 2: Chain 3, 2dc in the same stitch and each stitch around, slip stitch to the first dc to join (22dc)
Row 3: Chain 3, 2dc in the same stitch, 1dc in the next stitch, * 2dc in the next stitch, 1 double crochet in the next * repeat ** around, slip stitch to the first dc to join (33dc)
Row 4: Chain 3, 2dc in the same stitch, 1dc in the next 2 stitches, * 2dc in the next stitch, 1 double crochet in the next 2 stitches * repeat ** around, slip stitch to the first dc to join (44dc)
Rows 5 to 9: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in the same stitch and in each stitch around. Slip stitch to the first dc to join (44dc)
Row 10: Chain 1, (IN BACK LOOPS ONLY) 1sc in the same stitch and each stitch around. Slip stitch to the first dc to join. Fasten off and weave in ends!
And there you have it! A super quick and easy beanie ready to go! If you'd like the beanie to be a bit longer, you can add more rows after row 9 to your desired length.
As far as changing colours goes, you can do it at the beginning of each row as you please, or stick to the same colour. It's up to you, get creative! If you’re unsure how to go about changing from one colour to the next, there are plenty of videos tutorials on YouTube you can seek out.
I hope you liked this pattern! :) If you have any critiques or questions, please leave me a message below or send me an email! All (constructive) feedback is welcome and I'd be very grateful for any suggestions.
