The Yarn that’s perfect for
Last fall I was browsing my local craft store when I came across a Caron Cupcake from Yarnspirations. If you haven’t seen them they are yarn cakes wrapped to look like little cupcakse! They were to cute to pass up so I picked up the colorway Sweet Berries which is a fun mix of purple, pink and salmon.
The label suggested a size G crochet hook while not extremely small it was definitely different than the 10 mm crochet hook I love to work with. I was a little intimidated at first but loved how the small hook size gave the beanie a sweet delicate look.

THE SWEET CROCHET BEANIE PATTERN
Chain (ch) 7, in the second Ch from the hook Sc (single crochet), Sc in each Ch across, turn. (6)
Ch 1, in the first St (stitch) Sc in the backloop (bl), Sc in each st across in the bl, turn. (6)
Row 3 – 66:
Repeat row 2.
Finish the band by holding Row 1 and Row 68 together to join with a Sl St (slip stitch) do not fasten off!
THE MAIN BEANIE
You will now be working along the long edge of the band we just joined.
Chain 1, work a sc into the space between rows 1 & 2, Ch 1, work a sc in between rows 3 & 4, Ch 1, (see pictures for reference), Repeat across by sc between rows and Ch 1 until you have a total of 33 sc’s and 33 ch 1’s for a total of 66.
Do not ch 1 or join, work a Sc in the first Ch 1 space of round 1, ch 1, work another Sc into the next Ch 1 space, repeat around until your hat measures approx 8.5 to 9″ from band to top. (whichever fits best) ending with a Sc.
CLOSING THE BEANIE
After you have finished the main part of the beanie sl st into the back loop of the next stitch in the row directly below the current one and fasten off. (see picture)
Fasten off yarn leaving a good 12-15″ yarn tail. Attach the tail of yarn to the sewing needle. Weave in and out through the last row of stitches.
Pull tightly to close! Turn hat inside out to fasten off and secure the loose yarn ends. I tend to use this technique a lot to finish hats like my Williams Beanie. It becomes quite easy after doing it over and over.
Now just finish up this easy crochet beanie by weaving in all yarn ends throughout the hat!
That’s it! The sweet crochet beanie is now finished! You can add an optional pom or faux fur topper to your hat! If you’d like to do that you can use the Clover Pom Maker for an easy solution!
