- Worsted Weight Yarn – 2 colors I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby for both the bow and the beanie. It took less than half a skein of each color to complete the beanie.
- Tapestry/Yarn Needle
- G Hook (4.25mm) I used a Boye Hook
- Clip for bow
- Chain Stitch
- Slip Stitch
- DC – Double Crochet
- SC, BLO – Single Crochet, Back Loop Only
- HDC, BLO – Half Double Crochet, Back Loop Only
Time: about an hour
- If you crochet tight, use an H or an I hook. Add additional rows to the bottom to make the beanie longer if desired. If you wish to make it smaller, use a smaller hook or complete 9 rows of DC vs. 10.
- We will work from the top of the beanie down to the brim.
- Slip stitch at the end of each round and chain two to begin the next round for rounds 1-10.
- We increase in the second and forth rounds only by completing two DC in every 4th stitch for those two rounds.
- The chain two at the beginning of each round counts as a stitch.
- Chain 2
- DC into each stitch for a total of 39 stitches counting the chain two at the beginning of the round
- Slip stitch into first stitch as show below

- Chain 2
- *Put 1 DC in next 2 stitches, 2 DC in 4th stitch*, repeat for a total of 48 stitches.
