Pebbled Heart Beanie a Free Crochet Hat Pattern

If you’re looking for the perfect beanie for Valentine’s Day then you’ll love the Pebbled Heart Beanie.

This crochet hat pattern features a little heart design front and center. Show your love by crocheting a heart hat for your friends, family and neighbors.

The texture of this stitch really creates a pebble like surface. Since I chose grey, the color also resembles pebbles. But you can choose any colors you prefer.

This free crochet hat pattern includes sizes for the whole family. So you can crochet hats for all your sweethearts this Valentine’s Day.

Or just because you love to crochet and you love them. Create custom color combinations that please everyone in the house.

The hat sizes start at 0-3mos and go through med/large adult size. Be sure to check gauge for you best fit.

Yarn

In this hat pattern I use Caron Simply Soft. I love how soft and shiny this yarn is in my finished patterns.

You can definitely use a different #4 medium worsted weight yarn. In the original Pebbled Beanie pattern I used Lion Brand’s Heartland.

Stitch

If you remember the Pebbled Beanie crochet hat pattern, then you’ll recognize this stitch. It’s a mini bean stitch with a modification, plus it’s worked in the round.

I love the texture this stitch creates. When the mini bean is worked flat, there’s a chain 1 after each puff like stitch.

But for this hat I’ve left that chain 1 off. This creates a more dense fabric that is perfect for crochet beanies.

I first used this stitch in my crochet bowtie pattern. I called it the mini puff stitch and there’s a tutorial for it too.

I really like this Snowball Stitch from Rachel at DesertBlossomCrafts. It features a bobble and I do love that texture!

Notes

  1. Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  2. Hat is worked in the round, from the top down.
  3. Color changing tip: before the last movement of last stitch before color change, drop the first color and pick up the second color, finishing the stitch in the new color. 
  4. Carry your colors through the rnd when possible to minimize weaving in ends. You can see more in this tutorial.
