Matteo Beanie a Free Crochet Pattern in All Sizes

Sharing is caring!

The Matteo Crochet Beanie is full of texture and sized perfectly for the whole family. This top down, unisex hat is a staple in a handmade wardrobe. Everyone needs a go to crochet hat like the Matteo Beanie.

I’m excited to share the Matteo Beanie crochet pattern with you in all sizes! One of the first beanie patterns I shared on this little bloggy was created for a friend’s birthday. I crocheted him a hat, wrote it up and shared it!

It’s been a pretty popular design. When he asked for a matching scarf, I took this opportunity to rework the matching Matteo Beanie pattern in multiple sizes, woohoo!

You can purchase the ad-free, well formatted PDF Pattern in one of my shops. Scroll down for the free pattern!

The texture of the Matteo Beanie is achieved with alternating front post double crochets and double crochets. You will work a dc into a fpdc and a fpdc into a dc.

I’ve marked this one as an intermediate skill level because you do need to know how to place post stitches. That’s not to say an adventurous beginner can’t do this pattern-you can!

Here’s a little pic of my red head modeling the toddler size Matteo Beanie.

I think I need to add a pom!

Materials

  • 75-200 yds #4 med worsted weight yarn, I used Lion Brand’s Heartland* in Joshua Tree for the dark green one.
  • 5.5 mm hook* US Size I-9, or hook needed to meet gauge.
  • Yarn needle
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors

Notes

  1. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative.
  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. If this is too tricky just a ch 3 or the alternative totally works! I try to keep my seams as seamless as possible 🙂
  5. Begin with a magic circle.

HI There , If i wanted to make this into a messy bun beanie are you able to modify the adult pattern for this.

Hi Michelle, If you would like to make this beanie a messy bun hat then I would recommend starting with an open circle of 36 sts. You would Fdc 36, or ch 38 + dc in the 2nd ch and each ch across, then sl st to join into a circle. This would make the bun opening in the top of the hat. From there you would pick up the pattern from Rnd 4 and on. I hope this helps, let me know how it works out, if you try it! Crystal
