It’s me, Jessica with Nice and Knotty.
It’s beanie weather! Frigid temperatures are hitting everywhere this winter and cozy caps are more essential than ever! I chose this textured beauty of a beanie for a Christmas present and it did not disappoint.
I love the bobbles all the way around and the bright hue of yellow in remembrance of the sunshine-filled days of summer. Did I mention it’s really cold here? I also can’t get enough of the adorable pom pom on top!
What materials do I need to crochet a beanie?
- Red Heart Super Saver in Bright Yellow
- White Faux Fur Pom Pom
- I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
- Yarn needle
- Isabel Beanie Hat, Paid Crochet Pattern
Bulky yarn is called for in the pattern but the color of yarn I was using was specifically requested so I used worsted weight size 4 yarn. I considered doing two strands together but I was afraid the bobbles wouldn’t look as nice that way. I used about one third of a skein of the Super Saver yarn.
There was no hook size given for using worsted weight yarn so I opted for a mid-size hook.
If you wanted to do a yarn pom pom instead of a faux fur one, you could easily make the swap.
How long does it take to crochet a beanie?
The entire project took me 3 hours from start to finish. This includes weaving in ends and stitching on the pom pom.
My hat was sized for an adult female. The circumference of the hat is approximately 22 inches and is about 8 inches in height from crown to the end of the brim.
There is no gauge for this pattern being worked in a round. It is ideal to know the circumference of the hat wearer’s head if possible. But if you don’t know it, there is a handy chart of estimated head sizes based on age included with the pattern!
That said, my personal gauge for this pattern was 20 sc and 4 rows to equal a 4-inch square. This was done in the pattern of the brim, which is single crochet in back loops only.
The Isabel beanie hat looks intricate and has a lovely detail to it but it is so effortless to make! It works up quickly and easily while maintaining the look of an elaborate design. The pattern was well-written and included photos for some parts but they aren’t necessary at all to follow along.
I think this hat would be so cute in multiple colors, highlighting the bobble rows! Give it a try and add your favorite accent to it!
