Looking for a simple beanie for everyone? Look no further! I always love the look of a simple beanie, but I could never find one that my husband liked until now!! I started designing this, and he said “Ooo I like that! Can you make one for me?” and friends, I grabbed my new Premier Anti-Pilling Yarn and whipped one up for him that same day! He loved the Bark color of the yarn, and how soft it was. You want to know what I loved about the yarn? It’s machine washable and the Anti-Pilling is no joke! Holds up great, and if you ever do see a pill, just pop it in the wash and it’s good as new!! Because let’s be honest hats for husbands need to be as durable as hats for kids 😉 My husband was even grateful enough to let me take pictures of him wearing it! How fun right 🙂
This is a super simple beanie y’all. I am talking worked flat, no increasing, no decreasing! Got your interest now huh 😉 Let’s jump into materials.

Ch 37 (or 53 for fold over brim option)
1- Sl St into 2nd Ch from your hook, Sl St into each st across. (36 sts *or 52 for fold over brim*)
2- Ch 1, turn your work. Sl St in BLO for each st. (36 sts /52 sts)
Repeat Row 2 until your piece measures 15.5/16 inches long. Measure your piece flat and un-stretched! *Took 72 rows for me to reach 16 in.*
Once you reached your length, tie of leaving a long tail. *Around 12 inches*
You should now have a long rectangle piece, laying flat fold the two short ends together. Using your yarn needle and your long tail sew those two sides together.
You will now be at the “Top” of your beanie. We need to sew this close. Take your needle and yarn tail and weave in and out of the stitches at the top. Pull it closed as much as you can. The yarn gets bulky at the top once we scrunch it all together. To fully close the top take your yarn needle and slide it through the top opening diagonally. (See photo below)
Do this 2-4 more times in different directions at the top until your top is fully closed.
Secure your ends, weave them in and YOU ARE DONE!
Feel free to add a faux fur pom, a yarn pom, or leave it as is! I would love to see all your ribbed beanies! Be sure to tag me @sierrascraftycreations on IG <3 Happy Crocheting Friends!
Using up some stash yarn and don’t think I have enough to double it! Going to try with a smaller hook and single strand just this time around because this is perfect! Wish me luck!
