19 Stylish Crochet Hat and Beanie Free Patterns
Diamonds Beanie, Slouch, Messy Bun & Ear Warmer Crochet Pattern
Whether you’re looking to save on your own accessories or want to personalize a gift for a friend, knitting a hat from scratch can be a great project. If you’re new to crocheting, creating a whole hat can seem daunting. However, this is easier than it sounds. By following a few simple instructions and spending a little time, you can knit an adorable and unique hat.
This hat is a classic and comfortable hat that can be easily adjusted to fit any head! I love that this is done from top to bottom, so you can make it as long or short as you like. Knit to get more circles for a baggy hat, or fewer circles for a fitted beanie. It’s also very simple and definitely suitable for beginners if you know how to knit in a circle!
Last year, I designed the Chevron Peaks Slouch for the Hat Not Hate campaign and I really loved the technique & crochet stitches that created the design and texture of the hat. I loved it so much that I came up with an argyle design for last year’s crochet Christmas stocking pattern. Then, after completing the argyle stocking, I knew that the design would make a great hat, but I ran out of time last winter to release the Argyle Beanie & Slouch and released it this past fall. Since then, I’ve come up with a few more fun designs using this technique. You can find the free crochet pattern for the Diamonds Beanie & Slouch in this post below, or an ad-free print friendly version on Love Crafts here, Ravelry here, or on Etsy here. *The ad-free PDF includes the beanie, slouch, messy bun & ear warmer patterns in one.
I’ve had so many crocheters reach out to tell me that they LOVED my Chevron Peaks Slouch. I was pleasantly shocked because it was one of those designs that I really didn’t think would garner much attention. All of the positive messages I received were the reason I used the same technique for the argyle stocking and this crochet beanie pattern. I’ve got a couple more fun designs coming your way with this technique too!
