THE YARN That’s Perfect for this Easy Crochet Beanie
While I was designing this diagonal beanie crochet pattern, I knew that I wanted to use Lion Brand Wool-Ease Tonal. I ultimately chose it because of all the exciting shades that were available. I love all the colors and highly suggest checking them out if you have a spare second! You will not be disappointed!

After contemplating for a while I decided to use the color Gray Marble because it was neutral and would go with most any outfit. Plus, I love the way the yarn almost looks painted on. A win win! 🙂
QUICK Beanie PATTERN
This slouch only took about a total of two hours to make! My designing was mostly interspersed throughout my daughters swim practices and school pickup. So in reality you could get this beanie done in just one evening while Netflix binging! (Not that I do that! 😉) Pass the popcorn please! 🍿

How to do the SPHDC
I worked the band using single crochets in the back loop to give it a ridged effect and then throughout hat used a special hdc stitch to give it a bumpy texture.
I’ll explain the special stitch in detail below, but it really is just working 1 almost completed hdc in the back loop of the indicated stitch and 1 completed hdc in the front loop of the same stitch.
CLOSING UP THE TOP OF THE HAT
After I finished up the last row of the beanie I used a yarn needle to weave in the top of the hat to close it up like shown in the pictures below. If you need help with this part, I suggest watching this video tutorial on how to close the hole in a beanie from Elk Studio. Thanks Kathy!
