The winter season is almost over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared for next year, right? My favorite crochet patterns are the easiest ones to follow. I don’t want to have to decipher meaning from strange instructions. This crochet pattern is very simple, easy to follow, and uses simple stitches to create a hat that is comfortable and stylish.

Here is my pattern:

I used worsted weight (4) red heart yarn.

I used an I hook.

Abbreviations:
sc: single crochet
fpdc: Front Post double crochet
bpdc: back post double crochet.
ss: slip stitch
sk: skip
FO: Fasten Off
(Stitch count can be found in parenthesis.)

NOTE: Don’t join at the end of the round unless otherwise stated, use a stitch marker and work in continuous rounds.

Pattern:

Either use a magic circle or chain 4.
(If you chain, join to the first stitch with a slip stitch to form a ring.)

Rnd 1: 8sc in the ring. (8)
Rnd2: 2 sc in each stitch around. (16)
Rnd 3: *sc in next stitch, 2 sc in the next stitch.* Repeat from * around. (24)
Rnd 4: *sc in next 2 stitches, 2sc in next stitch* Repeat from * around. (32)
Rnd 5: *sc next 3 stitches, 2sc in next sc* Repeat from * around. (40)
Rnd 6: *sc in next 4 stitches, 2sc in next sc* Repeat from * around. (48)
Rnd 7: Sc in each stitch around.. (48)
Rnd 8: *sc in next 5 stitches, 2sc in next stitch* Repeat from * around. (56)
Rnd 9: Sc in each stitch around.. (56)
Rnd 10: *Sc in next 6 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch* repeat from * around. (64)
Rnd 11: Sc in each stitch around.. (64)
Rnd 12: *Sc in next 7 stitches, 2 sc in next stitch* Repeat from * around (72)
Rnd 13: Sc in each stitch around.. (72)
Rnd 14: *Sc in next 8 stitches, 2sc in next stitch* Repeat from * around. (80)

**From this point on, if you add more pattern rows, the slouchier the beanie will be at the end. Each row from now on will have 80 stitches.**

Rnd 15: work even.
Rnd 16: *fpsc (front post single crochet), bpsc (back post single crochet) * repeat around.
Rnd 17: *fpdc, bpdc* Repeat from * around.
Rnd 18: *fpsc, bpsc* Repeat around.
Rnd 19-23: Sc in each stitch around.
Rnd 24-25: *fpdc, bpdc* Repeat from * around.
Rnd 26: *fpsc, bpsc* Repeat from * around.
Rnd 27-31: Sc in each stitch around.

**Attach second color here, for brim, if you want to. From now on you can join the rounds.**

Rnd 32-36: Ch 3, *Fpdc, bpdc* Repeat from *around. The last two stitches in the round should be bpdc to continue the pattern. join with a slip stitch at the top of the Ch 3 at the beginning of the round.

I also added a puff stitch flower, and leaves behind it.
