Crossing Over Lightweight Crochet Beanie

This lightweight crochet beanie pattern is perfect for the fall and spring seasons when the weather is cold, but not too cold. It’s a light layer to keep your ears cozy from cooler winds and temperature. With that said, in extreme temperatures this could be just what you need under a hood to keep warm.

The fabric features a slight texture with a slightly lacy look. It is perfect for women and girls to wear to any occasions. Whether you need something for school, work, or for going out, this stylish beanie is just what you need.

I love the fall color as shown, but the yarn is available in several colors perfect for spring.

Here is the cowl pattern to match. this pretty beanie.

Finished Size

The finished size for this easy crochet hat pattern is about 18 inches in circumference. It fits an adult extra small, but it can be adjusted to any size you need from babies, toddlers, children, and adults sizes.

It’s always best to take measurements of the head circumference, but when not possible, use this hat sizing chart as a reference.

The Yarn

I used a light weight yarn called Woolike by Loops and Threads. The yarn is fairly easy to work with and gives you a comfortable stretch.

And it is not wool! Instead it is an acrylic/nylon blend, and is perfect for those who like wool, but are unable to wear it.

Other similar yarns can be substituted.

The Stitches

This beanie crochet pattern is worked up in a variation of the cross stitch. I added a bit of lace by making a chain after each stitch repeat for a pretty design.

The stitch pattern is easy and mindless to work on, making it great for relaxing.

The beanie hat is worked in one piece from the top down,

Notes

  • When you do your front post double crochet (fpdc) stitches at the brim, bring them up as high as the double crochets (dc) stitches in order to prevent the brim from curling up.
  • Instead of starting your crochet project with 3 chains you can use a magic ring to work your first round.
