This is just a standard head sizing chart provided for your convenience. This is not the final size. Sizes may differ due to crocheter’s tension and type of yarn used.
BRIM | Smaller hook size
Foundation: Ch 10 or as many ch sts as you want your brim size.
Note: Video for different brims! Adjust brim to accommodate the height of your beanie.
Row 1: 1sc into the 2nd ch from the hook and into each ch across. Ch1 and turn. (9 sts)
Row 2: 1sc tbl in the first st and every st across. Ch1 and turn. (9 sts)
Repeat row 2 until desired circumference ending on the same side as the beginning tail. Measure brim while slightly stretched. You want the brim snug but not over stretched. See chart on page 1 for standard circumference sizes.
Example: I worked 69 rows (23”) for a small adult.
Seaming the brim | Video Tutorial
Align the 2 short ends together. Work a sl st through the “chain” end of the brim and through the back loops of the other end of the brim. Flip brim right side out so the seam is on the inside.
BODY | Switch to larger hook size
Set up round 1 (Video): Ch1, work sc sts loosely in multiples of 8 sts around the brim. Join with a sl st to the 1st sc.
Notes: You should have 1 st per row. Increase number of sc sts to get a number in multiples of 8 sts.
Round 1: ch3 (counts as dc throughout). 4dc in the same st (half a shell), [sk3, 1sc, sk3**, 9-st Shell] Rep bet [ ] ending rep at **. End with 4 dc sts in the first st (this completes the rest of the 9-st shell. Join with a sl st to the 3rd ch from the beg ch3.
Round 2: ch1, 1sc in same st, [ch3, dc3tog, ch1, sk 3 sts, dc3tog, ch3**, 1sc in next st]. Rep between [ ] ending rep at **. Join with a sl st to the first sc.
Round 3: ch3, 4dc in the same st, [1sc in next ch1 sp**, 9-st Shell in the next sc]. Rep bet [ ] ending rep at **. End with 4 dc sts in the first sc. Join with a sl st to the 3rd ch from the beg ch3.
Repeat rounds 2-3 until beanie measures the desired (ear to crown) height measurement (see above chart) ending after round 3. Measure from the bottom of the brim. Adjust slouch by working less/more rounds keeping in mind the decrease adds approx. 2.5”.
Round 1: ch1, 1sc in same st, [ch2, dc3tog, sk 3 sts, dc3tog, ch2**, 1sc in next st]. Rep between [ ] ending rep at **. Join with a sl st to the first sc.
