Note: I recently decided to revisit my basic beanie/hat pattern.  After designing my Candy Corn and Scarecrow hats using an I 5.5mm crochet hook, I found that I really liked the size and closeness of the stitches. I will be transitioning all of my hat and wig patterns over to my new Basic Beanie pattern beginning on Monday, October 22nd. 

Materials

– I/5.5 mm & G/4mm crochet hooks (I love these Clover hooks!)

– tapestry needles
– stitch markers
– worsted weight yarn in  gray, blue & white

Finished Sizes

0/3 months – adult

Gauge

15 dc= 4″ and 10 rows= 4″

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
