Free Crochet Pattern with Video Tutorial – Single Crochet Beanie for Beginners

Free Crochet Pattern with Video Tutorial - Single Crochet Beanie

The single crochet stitch (abbreviated sc) is probably the first stitch any crocheter learns when they are first starting out. It is the simplest of all stitches, and also very versatile.

Single crochet produces a dense, tight fabric. This makes for a nice beanie or skull cap. My husband is bald and loves these types of caps, just long enough to almost touch his ears but not quite. If you are looking to make a long, slouchy beanie, you’ll want to use double crochet or even half double crochet to give your hat more stretch and drape.

If you are new to crochet and are looking for an easy project to practice your single crochets and working in the round, this is a good one for you. The pattern is written out below, and I’ve also made a video tutorial if you’d like to follow along that way. My suggestion would be to print out the pattern to have a look at it while you follow the video. This will help you learn how to read a pattern if you haven’t quite got that down yet.

The video is embedded below, but if you’d rather watch the video right on the youtube site you can do that here: Free Crochet Pattern Tutorial – Single Crochet Beanie

As always I love to see pictures of your finished items! If you are on Ravelry you can add the project to your queue here: Free Crochet Pattern – Single Crochet Beanie for Beginners
