Family Beanie Hats Crochet Pattern

It’s chilly outside these days so a beanie hat is a must-have necessity. If you’re eager to learn how to crochet a hat to keep your head warm this winter, look no further than our family beanie hat crochet pattern.

Perfect for the entire family, this easy crochet pattern makes a thoughtful gift for everyone in your family this season. This crochet beanie is affordable to make and since it’s unisex, it makes a perfect men’s crochet hat too.

I made my crochet hats in colors that look great on everyone too: cream and navy. The adult size is in a rich blue with white trim and a white pom pom. Then, to switch things up a little I made the children’s crochet hat pattern (which typically fits 2-6yrs) in cream with navy trim.

This free crochet hat pattern is so cute and I love the idea of a whole family with matching hats. It’s like a crafty version of the Brady Bunch.

The cascade 220 superwash merino yarn is 100% merino wool but it’s so soft. It’s not scratchy like most wool which means it won’t irritate sensitive skin. It’s also machine washable, so it’s easy to care for the whole family.

These crochet beanie hats are perfect for a family gift or nice stocking stuffers.

    Hi, I’m a little confused on what “Sc into each center v of each sc” means… its the upper hat rows 4-23. Please help me out! ?

    Love the hat. My son asked me to make him a beanie. Can this be made without the pompon on top?

    I loved the look of the hat but for the life of me I couldn’t figure it out. A video of what your were doing would have been very helpful.

    Very confused – so the ribbing is 94 rows then the body you go down to 72 ? Am I totally out to lunch??

      you do the ribbing first(it will be a relatively long narrow piece) then turn the ribbing so you will be crocheting along the “long side” which is the 72 stiches and you will start the main part of the hat above the ribbing.
