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.

The Yarn

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.

Sizing

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.

Notes

  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite.
  2. Beanie is worked top down, with dc stitches only until the crown circle measurement is reached for each size.
  3. Then you will alternate fpdc and dc around. In the following round, you will fpdc into a dc and dc into a fpdc. 
  4. 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.
  5. Begin with a magic circle.

Just wondering how you can jump from 50 stitches in the second to last row, to 40 stitches in the last row without doing two together.

Hi Sarah, you are right, that is a typo. It should still read 50 stitches on the last row for the men’s size. Thank you for letting me know!

there is something wrong with this pattern .rows 8-20 are repeats of rows 5-6 but row 5 is a dc increase row.should it read repeat rows 6-7 for rows 8-20? i have 10 rows and it's still flat with around 80sts!

re my above comment - i was referring to the man's size where the error is- should be rep rows 6-7. i have just read the women's size where that is rep rows 5-6 .

Thank you for replying so quickly Crystal! I am on the 7th row so my rounds are completed. It didn’t start waving until I started the fpdc rotations.

I would just double check your stitch count and stick with it a few more rounds. It may just be the switch to the different stitches since the post stitches create a much stretchier fabric than plain stitches. Once you get further along in the hat, it takes on a better shape. Let me know how it goes!
