Lontano Beanie a Free Crochet Hat Pattern

Lontano Beanie a Free Crochet Hat Pattern

The Lontano Beanie is beautiful, warm and simple. 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 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 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.

For the solid beanie I used the sc2tog for the decreases. If you choose to crochet 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.

Pin it for later!

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, like one of these.
  4. Use the inv dec technique described under Stitches for contrasting colors.
