Child & Adult Sawyer Beanie PatternĀ 

I love the Sawyer Beanie! It’s super versatile as you can roll the bottom for a cuffed look or wear it as a slouchy. Add a faux pom for a woodland-chic look or add a handmade pom for a classic look! So many options..Ā 


  • Less than one skein of Worsted Wight Yarn (I used ILTY from Hobby Lobby)
  • Tapestry/Yarn Needle
  • G Hook, 4.25mm
  • Scissors
  • Pom Pom maker, faux fur pom, or materials to make a faux fur pom (see Faux Fur Pom Pom Tutorial)


  • Chain stitch
  • DC (double crochet)
  • DC, BLO (double crochet, back loop only)
  • DC, FLO (double crochet, front loop only)
  • SC (single crochet)
  • Slip stitch


  • Alternate each row between DC, FLO & DC, BLO to achieve rigged look.
  • Chain two to begin each row.
  • DC directly into next stitch to begin new row after chaining two.
  • Your chain 2 at the beginning of each row counts as a stitch.
  • You will make a flat, rectangular piece of fabric and sew the beanie into hat form.

For this tutorial, we will make a 3-5 year old CHILD sized beanie. 5+ & adult sizes are listed below the tutorial.

  • Chain 38
  • Row 1: Skip first stitch and DC in each stitch until you reach the end of the row for a total of 37 stitches.
  • Row 2: Chain 2, DC, FLO in each stitch
  • Row 3: Chain 2, DC, BLO in each stitch
  • Rows 4-30:Ā ContinueĀ this pattern until you have a total of 30 rows.
  • Each row should have 37 stitches.

Your work should look similar to the photo below.

Sewing the beanie:

  • Flip work leaving the ridges facing up on your workspace.
  • Fold your work in half so that ridges are inside of your future beanie.
  • Slip stitch up the side of the beanie to close.Ā 
  • Slip stitch into last and swich from hook to needle.
  • Weave needle and yarn in and out of top of the beanie, circling all the way around the top. It will resemble a drawstring purse. I stitch in-between the first and second stitch of each row.
  • Tie knot.Ā 
  • Sew in all ends & turn beanie to ridged side.
  • That’s it! Time to choose a pom pom!! Either a faux fur or yarn pom will work for this style beanie.
  • Sew pom pom securely to top of beanie and sew in ends.


  • To make a beanie for a 5+ year old, chain 39, complete 32 rows.
  • Small Adult: Chain 40, complete 32 rows.
  • Large Adult: Chain 40, complete 34 rows.
  • Want to make an extra slouchy version? Chain 50. šŸ–¤


To make a scrap yarn beanie, change colors every two rows. This is a great way to utilize scrap yarn!! (I used a Bernat Pom for this beanie, and it is absolutely gorgeous.)

The Sawyer can be worn slouchyOr cuffed..
