There’s an updated version of the Textured Beanie here, that includes all sizes: NB-Adult!

The Textured Beanie is a great unisex hat for everyone in the family. The post stitches create a beautiful fabric that compliments any color. Worked up in medium worsted weight yarn, the Textured Beanie will be your new grab and go hat.

I created this textured beanie as a quick, last minute birthday gift. Our friend’s birthday is the week of Thanksgiving, and we were so busy, but I knew I could eek out another quick hat pattern. Plus, we often crochet for the ladies and girls in our lives, but what about the men? I love a good reason to crochet up a new pattern- so I did!

This textured beanie features the same great texture from my slouchy hat pattern, but fits like a traditional beanie. I used just part of a ball of Lion Brand’s Heartland yarn in Joshua Tree, which is such a dynamic color. This 100% acrylic yarn is super soft, affordable, widely available and comes in a slew of colors. I think often times, a color choice is what makes our crochet projects suitable for men or women and this color works for either.

I included two sizes for the Textured Beanie-a women’s and men’s beanie. The women’s beanie starts with a smaller circle so it’s short one round. It’s amazing how much of a difference one stitch or one round makes in our crochet sizing. This pattern is very stretchy thanks to the front post double crochet stitches.

Pattern Notes:

  • Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite.
  • Beanie is worked top down, with dc stitches only until the crown circle measurement is reached for each size.
  • Then you will alternate fpdc and dc around. In the following round, you will fpdc into a dc and dc into a fpdc. 
  • On the fpdc rounds I use my ch 3 alternative, but I wrap it around the post of the stitch, in the same manner you would for a fpdc.
  • Begin with a magic circle.

He was such a good sport to model for me.

I added this funny little leather label I found at Joann’s. I couldn’t find a link on line for you, but they were in the yarn section by the hooks. He thought it was pretty funny!
