Therefore, to create a crochet hat with more open stitches, it is recommended to use soft thread lines, while for a more closed beanie, it is better to opt for thicker lines.
In addition, the needles used have an important role in the final result of the piece. To obtain a softer look and more open stitches, needles with a larger number are more indicated, while smaller needles produce more closed and united stitches.
Finally, for beginners, it is recommended to use light colors, which make it easier to visualize the stitches.
Women’s Beanie Step by Step
To start, make a magic circle with the crochet thread and fasten it with a very low stitch. Then, make a high stitch inside the magic circle and 11 more high stitches inside the circle, which will total 12 stitches in the first circle.
From the second circle, make 2 high stitches in each high stitch of the previous circle, until you complete the number of stitches necessary for the desired beanie size.
After that, make a high stitch in each high stitch of the previous circle, without increasing. Repeat this pattern until you reach the desired height for the beanie.
Once you reach the desired height for the beanie, start to decrease the stitches to close the top. Therefore, make a high stitch in two high stitches of the previous circle, immediately a high stitch in one high stitch, repeating this pattern until you reach the end of the row.
Then, cut the thread, leaving a tail of about 15 centimeters and pass the crochet needle through the last stitch, pulling the thread to close the top of the beanie. Then, hide the ends of the thread with the tapestry needle.
You can add pom-poms, fringes, ribbons or other decorations to personalize your women’s crochet beanie.
Crochet Men’s Hat
First, make a magic circle and fasten with a very low stitch. Then, you must make a high stitch within the magic circle.
Next, make 11 more hooks into the circle for a total of 12 points in the first circle.
Then, starting with the second circle, work two double crochet stitches into each double high stitch of the previous circle until you complete the number of stitches needed to make the desired hat size.
Immediately, you will have to make a high stitch in each low stitch of the previous circle, without increments. So, repeat the entire pattern until you reach the desired size for the hat.
When you reach the desired size, simply begin to reduce the stitches to close the top.
Thus, make a high stitch with two high stitches of the previous row, then a high stitch with one high stitch and repeat the pattern until you reach the end of the row.
Finally, cut the line, leaving only a stub of about fifteen centimeters and pass the crochet needle through the final point, pulling the line to close the top of the hat. Ready!
