How To Make Crochet Beanies

Crochet beanies are great to make as they are the best project for beginners. As far as my students are concerned, beanies are the first things that they make while learning crochet. The easiest question I’ve ever been asked regarding crochet is how to crochet beanies.

With minimum effort and maximum presence of mind, you can complete your project beanie in only an hour or even minimum.

REQUIRED MATERIALS:

Two balls of fine wool in 2 different colors of your choice, crochet hook, small scissors.

1. Two yarns are held together through the whole thing.

2. 1st row: chain 20, very loosely. Do a slip stitch into first slip stitch.

3. 2nd to 5th rows: Chain 2 to turn. Now yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, draw through a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over, insert hook in same slip stitch, yarn over, draw through a loop, yarn over, draw through 4 loops on hook, in each following slip stitch. Slip stitch in top of first slip stitch to close round.

4. 6th row: Chain 2 to turn * Make 4 pique slip stitch, make 5th pique slip stitch over 2 stitches (i.e. don't draw the second look through the same slip stitch as the first, but through the next one) * 4 times. Slip stitch in top of first slip stitch to close round as usual.

5. 7th row: Chain 2 to turn * yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, draw through a loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over, insert hook in same slip stitch, yarn over, draw through a loop, yarn over, draw through 4 loops on hook, over 2 stitches (i.e. don't draw the second look through the same slip stitch as the first, but through the next one) * all around. Slip stitch in top of first slip stitch to close round as usual.

6. 8th row: Draw yarn through all stitches, pull tight. Work in ends with yarn needle. If you need a bigger one then you can always add more rows, but don’t forget to keep the same aspect ratio.

That was it!!! Wasn’t it fun? It is such an easy task to do that anyone can do it. It’s great for teaching children who are into crochet crafts. Try visiting some websites for more ideas. Here are few recommended ones:
