Basic HDC Beanie

This is a basic beanie pattern I came up with several years ago; perfect pattern for a beginner. If you'd like a smaller or larger size beanie, just change the hook size.


Materials
Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton or other Aran weight yarn - Approx. 140 m./153 yds.
G hook - 4.5mm/Small
H hook - 5.0mm/Regular
 I hook - 5.5mm/Large
Yarn needle for weaving in ends

Finished Measurements

Small
G hook - 20-21 inch circumference
7 1/2 inches from crown to rim edge

Regular
H hook - 22-23 inch circumference
8 inches from crown to rim edge

Large
I hook - 23-24 inch circumference
8 1/2 inches from crown to rim edge

Gauge
6 hdc's/htr's and 5 rows = 2 inches.

Pattern Notes
*No turning after rows.
*To end refers to directions between **.
*Ch 1 at beginning of row does not count as a stitch throughout the pattern, it serves to reduce a visible seam.
*Crochet this hat using 1 strand of Aran weight yarn, or 2 strands DK weight.
