A super quick and easy summer beanie to crochet up. It’s not only a great stashbuster project, but it’s also an easy pattern for a beginner. Wear it to add more style, or to keep your hair down and out of your face.

Skill Level: Beginner

Yarn: Red Heart Soft Touch
Crochet Hook: H/8-5.00mm

Gauge: 3″ over first 4 rounds.

Finished Size: When laying flat it measures 10″ across the brim and 7″ from top to bottom. It’s nice and stretchy; it fits my small head but will stretch to fit a medium and maybe even a large head.

Abbreviations:

Bet = Between
Bl/bls = Back Loop/Back Loops
Ch/Chs = Chain/Chains
FO = Fasten Off
Hdc = Half Double Crochet
Rep = Repeat
Sc = Single Crochet
Sk = Skip
Sl St = Slip Stitch
Sp/Sps = Space/Spaces
St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches

Note: When you work 2 hdc’s into the same stitch or space, think of these as a set, or a mini shell. Then when you crochet your next round and the pattern says “2 hdc in sp before next hdc”, work these in between the previous set of hdc’s. Below are two images that might help.
