Crocheted beanies are a fun and rewarding project, and they’re also a great way to use up small amounts of yarn. In this free tutorial series, I’ll show you how to crochet a basic beanie hat with any size yarn and any size hook to fit any size head. You can also learn how to add a brim and ear flaps to your beanie to customize it.
Video 1: Crochet a Basic Beanie
In this first video, I’ll show you how to crochet a basic beanie hat. We’ll start with the crown, and work our way down. You’ll need to know the approximate size of the head you’re making the hat for, as well as some yarn, a crochet hook that’s an appropriate size for the yarn, and a stitch marker.
