Bayers Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

I am so excited to introduce the Bayers Beanie to you! This double-thick, ultra-warm beanie is perfect for keeping out that winter chill, and the super-easy crochet stitches make it a breeze to work up! I designed this beanie for my husband Sean who has been asking me for a warm winter hat for some time now! When I got my hands on some of this WeCrochet High Desert Yarn, I knew this was the perfect time to make one.

Fold the tube in half to create a double thickness for the hat. The rolled edge is the brim, the unsewn edges are the top of the hat. 

To sew the top of the hat shut, pinch the top into four sections in an ‘X’ shape. Sew each of the four sections closed through all thicknesses. Weave in ends. 

Turn hat right side out so that sewn seam is on the inside of the hat.
