Lindsey Crochet Beanie Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

The Lindsey Crochet Beanie is made with Bulky Weight Yarn [5] and a 6 mm (J) hook. This hat features a modified Crossed Double Crochet Stitch.

This crochet beanie is available in sizes Baby to Adult (large). The full written crochet pattern is available in my post below.

This is the final of the four patterns I designed using my skein of Caron Colorama O’Go Yarn.

In case you missed the other 3 free patterns, here are the direct links:

  1. Jordan Warm Winter Headband
  2. Skinny Coffee Cup Sleeve
  3. Jessica Winter Hat

[disclaimer] I received the yarn for this pattern from Yarnspirations.[/disclaimer]

Yarnspirations sent me a Caron Colorama O’Go Yarn to try and it really was Tangle-Free! You can pull the yarn from either end and it is so easy to work with. My favorite part was that I didn’t have to stop to untangle or unwind, I could just crochet and crochet and crochet.

For all of the projects, except my Lindsey Beanie, I worked with the yarn color as it came out of the skein. For the Lindsey Beanie after my grey was finished, it looped to the bright green and I did not like that for the final round of the hat so I pulled the teal color that was on the other end of the skein and used it instead. Easy peasy!

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple: 2 (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • Crochet stitch pattern : Crossed Double Crochet Variation
  • The initial ch-3 does not count as a stitch.
  • The initial ch-2 does not count as a stitch.
  • The initial ch-1 does not count as a stitch.
  • The sl st does not count as a stitch.
  • Make your sl st tightly.
  • You may customize the hat height by working the repeat as many, or as few, times as you wish. Every 2 rounds you add with the stitch pattern, will add approximately 1 inch of height to the hat. 
  • If you would like to add a little bit more height to the hat, work an additional round (or two) of sc in the back loop only. 
  • I use an invisible join to finish off my final round of stitches, you may substitute a sl st to join if you prefer.

  1. You are so very welcome. I loved this pattern and the Jessica Winter Hat as I made both. Very easy to make and they are lovely hats. Thank you for the patterns.
    Regina

  2. Hi Regina, Thank you so much for catching this! It definitely should have been 6 and 7. Adult Medium was incorrect too. I’ve updated it in the post and I apologize for any delay it caused you having the wrong information. All the best, Rhondda

  3. On the adult large, should the repeat for 8 through 13 be row 6 and 7 instead of 5 and 6
