Around this time last year, I decided to reteach myself how to crochet so that I could ease my yarn tension. It took a few weeks because of muscle memory but I was finally able to retrain my fingers which has allowed me to crochet more smoothly and quickly.

Since my tension is looser than it was before, I decided to write another basic Double Crochet Beanie pattern.

Finished Sizes

preemie, 0/3m, 3/6m, 6/12m, toddler, child & adult

Notes

-you are crocheting in the round

-hat is worked from the top down

-the ch at the beginning of each round never counts as your first stitch

-you can make any size hat longer or shorter by repeating or eliminating the second to last row

-Some of my sizes have a hat height that is shorter than the size chart recommends. I felt that some of the hats ended up being too tall. I based my opinion on my experience measuring hats for myself, my kids and my Etsy Shop customers. You can simply add a few more rounds of dc if you want your hat to be taller.

Gauge

14 dc= 4" and just over 9 rows= 4"

Size Chart

This is the hat size guide that I use to design my hats. This guide was made by Jeanne Steinhilber for The Crochet Crowd. You can read the original post here.
