I was so excited at the thought of coming up with a quick and easy beanie pattern, my joy knew no end when it worked out exactly as planned, do you do know how it feels when a pattern works out just as planned. It was a delight; I couldn’t resist working up 3 beanies for few hours.
I present you with my “Pebble beanie pattern” which is a quick and easy beanie pattern. This pattern is designed such that you could make yourself some cute beanies within a few minutes, yes – you read those correctly, you can make yourself a hat within a few mins.
This pattern is worked from the brim up, and you can easily size it to your preference.
Yarn choice for this easy beanie pattern
Any Chunky weight yarn would be perfect for this easy and quick beanie pattern. #5 yarn in color(s) of your choice would make a fast project. Using another weight of yarn to make this beanie might work out well only if you are willing to adjust your foundation chains, numbers of repeats with an appropriate crochet hook size.
I made this easy beanie pattern using the beautiful Wander Acrylic Yarn, #4 Worsted Weight, (100% Acrylic, 120 yards/109 m per 3 oz/100g Ball) by Furls.
Worthy of note, the finished pictures made using Variegated colors don’t do justice to the beautiful texture in this beanie so I would suggest that for this pattern, a variegated yarn won’t bring out the beauty.
