How to make the Courtney Crochet Crochet Beanie Hat

This hat has super simple construction. You’ll first crochet a rectangle that is as long as the hat will be around. (Nerd alert: I guess technically the shape won’t be a rectangle but a parallelogram since the stitches make the fabric slant.)

Once you are done crocheting the hat, you’ll fold the short ends together and sew them up. I ended up using a mattress stitch, but you may find another sewing technique that you like better.

The final step is to use a strand of yarn to cinch one side of the hat closed and top it off with a pom pom (if you want). I used a faux fur pom pom I got as part of this set from Amazon, but I also think it would look so cute if you make a yarn pom pom for this hat.

Stitches and yarn used for the Courtney Crochet Hat

If you’d like to read more about both the yarn and stitches used for this hat, head over to the Courtney Crochet Scarf post. I go into more detail about both in that post.

What I will say is that the lookalike star stitch used for this hat and the matching scarf is so much easier and uses less yarn than you’d expect. It might just become a new favorite stitch pattern for you!
