Red crochet beanie with white trim.

These chunky beanies are great for a basic hat. You can jazz them up with a chunky heart or little bear ears to up the cuteness factor.

Yarn

For this beanie pattern I used Lion Brand’s Hometown USA. This is an affordable, superbulky #6 weight yarn that comes in a variety of colors.

This burnt red color is Tampa Spice. The trim is Wool Ease Thick and Quick in fisherman.

Can you use a different yarn? Sure, most #6 superbulky yarns are suitable to this basic beanie pattern.

Stitch

This chunky crochet beanie consists of half double crochet stitches. So it’s an easy peasy, beginner friendly hat pattern.

For the trim I use the single crochet stitch in a different color for a nice contrast.

Materials

  • 40yds/37m-81yds/74m super bulky yarn (#6) I used Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Tampa Spice.

Notes

  1. Ch 1 at the beginning of the round does not count as a stitch.
  2. Join tightly with a slip stitch to keep the join “seamless.”
