Ribbings of Gold Beanie

The fall colors are some of my favorite seasonal colors. Not sure why, but I just tend to love the beautiful colors that nature creates at this time of year. And because of that, I always tend to purchase a few balls of fall colored yarn. And this year I bought this red and light brown yarn, which was enough for a hat and some fingerless gloves. The glove pattern will be published in a few weeks from now because it still needs testing and I’ve got so many projects on the go again it’s not even funny.

Fall is almost over here. The leaves have pretty much fallen off the trees, but I’m still going to wear this hat. Although they are fall colors, when I took the picture I realized that these colors would be great for Christmas as well!

The Size

The hat pattern is given to fit an adult small or teen size. However, it is very easy to adjust in size and can be crocheted to fit a baby, toddler, child or extra large adult. Use this crochet hat size chart as a reference.

Recommended Yarn

Vanna’s Choice is one of my favorite yarns for making crocheted hats. It is not only economical, but it is also super stretchy and comfy to wear. It is a medium-weight acrylic yarn available at Michaels and other Lion Brand yarn stores.

Notes

  • You might want to check out this tutorial on how to do the Cross-over Long DC
  • When you do your first cross-over long dc in the round make sure that you work it into the last st made in previous rnd and NOT into the joining sl st. You might find it helpful to mark your last st in the round before you make your join.
  • All rounds except for the back post stitches, are crocheted in back loops only.
  • All rounds are joined in both loops.

  1. Why do we have to go through hell and back to get a “free Pattern” of the gold ribbed hat? After wrestling with it for 1/2 hour – I give up.

    1. Joyce, Would you mind being more specific as to what problems you’re having? There is a download button underneath the main image, which should give you a clean pdf file. You can also use the print-friendly button at the bottom, which sometimes causes issues, but that is beyond my control. If none of those work, copy and paste the text into Word or Notepad.
