Lontano Crochet Beanie a Free Crochet Hat Pattern in All Sizes

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for details.

The Lontano Beanie is a beautiful bottom up crochet hat pattern that pops in stripes. Crochet your new go-to hat for daily wear or fall fun with the kids! Cute and cozy, how can you go wrong?

Top your Lontano Crochet Beanie with a pom or without, create one for a boy or a girl, customize the colors, with or without striping, this is your beanie! The easy crochet hat pattern is worked bottom up and available in sizes 0-3 mos through large adult.

Crocheted with #4 medium weight yarn, this hat works up quickly. The brim is worked flat using crochet ribbing. The hat body is worked along one edge of the brim in the round. Decreases are spread evenly over the last few rows and the hole sewn closed.

Had to make my little dude a crochet Lontano Beanie in his favorite color-cyan. Not to be confused with light blue or anything like that. Matches his shirt perfectly.

You can tell how fitted the Lontano Beanie is here too. The decrease rounds start pretty early in the hat pattern. They’re staggered over several rounds to create that gentle slope that fits so well.

For the solid crochet beanie I used the sc2tog for the decreases. If you choose to crochet this bottom up hat with contrasting stripes (like the blue and stone one pictured) I would recommend using the invisible decrease technique to keep the sc stitches looking the same.

Materials

Notes

  1. Ch 1 does not count as a st.
  2. Brim is worked flat, seamed into a circle and hat is worked on top of one long edge of the brim, in the round.
  3. Ch 3 counts as a stitch, I highly recommend using a ch 3 alternative, here’s my favorite.
  4. Use the inv dec technique described under Stitches for contrasting colors.

Stitches/Abbreviations

Sk-skip the indicated stitch
