Crochet Pattern Notes

  • This crochet beanie pattern starts with a magic circle.
  • The beginning of each round starts with a chain. This chain does not count as your first stitch. 
  • At the end of each round, you’ll join your yarn with a slip stitch (sl st) to the first stitch made in that round. 
  • Repeat instructions between asterisks (*) for the remainder of the round.
  • You are crocheting in the round.
  • Hat is worked from the top down.
  • You can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the second to last row.

Use your scrap piece of yarn to tie the pom pom. I recommend you double/triple knot it.
