If you’re looking for a fun and easy beanie crochet pattern, look no further! This crochet hat is super easy once you learn the puff stitch.
I found this sparkly yarn at my local Michael’s store and I knew that I wanted to make something fun for my daughter. The yarn is Lion Brand Wool Ease in the colour Celebration. I just love the sparkly rainbow strand that is woven throughout the yarn! This pattern is for a child size 6-10 years old, but you can easily make it any size by adjusting the width of the brim, and the length of the hat.
Rainbow Sparkle Beanie Crochet Pattern
10mm Crochet hook
2 skeins Lion Brand Wool Ease yarn in Celebration (I used just over 1 skein)
Abbreviations: (Written in American terms)
SC: single crochet
Sl St: Slip stitch
Blo: Back loop only
Sk st: skip stitch
Yo: yarn over
Puff St: Puff stitch (insert hook into st, yo, pull through, *yo, insert hook back into same st, yo, pull through*. Rpt from * 3 times into same stitch. Yo, pull through all 6 loops on your hook.)
Row 1: SC into 2nd ch from hook. SC into each stitch to end (3 st)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, SC in blo in each st to end (3 st)
Repeat row 2 until row 33, or when brim measures 19″ around.
Fold the brim in half so the two ends line up. Stitch two ends together with sl st across to close the brim of the hat.
You will now begin working in the round.
Round 1: Ch 1, SC evenly around the brim. You should have 33 SC at the end. (33 st)
Round 2: Pull up your yarn to the height of a DC to begin your first puff stitch. Puff st into first st, Ch 1, sk 1, *puff st into next st, ch 1, sk 1* Repeat from * to end. Sl st into first ch 1 st. Ch1, turn.
Round 3-10: Puff st into space to left of first puff st from previous row. Ch 1, sk st, *puff st in next space to the left of puff st from previous row, ch 1, sk 1 * Repeat from * to the end. Sl st into first ch 1 st. Ch 1, turn.
Repeat Round 3 for 7 more rounds.
Tie off, leaving a long end to sew top of hat closed.
Sew top of hat closed by weaving the end in and out of the top round of stitches using a yarn needle.
Pull the yarn tight to close the hole and voila! Tie off and weave in your ends.
Add a pom pom to the top and you’re done!
