The Boardwalk Beanie Pattern

Say hello to the Boardwalk Beanie, my latest design. It contains three of my favorite things — amazing texture, pom poms and a ribbed band.The beanie pictured was made with almost one whole ball of Caron Baby Cakes in Dreamy Mint. (I recently realized how addicted I am to Caron Cakes. I love being able to use multiple colors without having to attach new yarn and weave in multiple ends.)

The band pictured above measures about 15 inches, and the entire beanie is 7 inches tall (including band).

To start your beanie, chain 9. Single crochet into the second chain from the hook and every chain across. You should have 8 single crochets. *Chain 1 and turn. Single crochet into the BLO — back-loop only — of every single crochet across.* Repeat *to* until the band is the size you need. After finishing the band, you will need to slip stitch the ends of the band together before you begin working on the hat portion.

Hat:

Round 1: Place one half-double crochet into the side of each row from the band. (If you have 30 rows in your band, you should also have 30 half-double crochets).

Round 2 & 3: Chain 1 (does not count as a stitch). Place one half-double crochet in same space. *Place one front post double crochet {use video above to learn how} around next stitch. Place one half-double crochet above next stitch.* Repeat from *to* until end of round. Slip stitch into top of first stitch.

Round 4 & 5: Chain 1 (does not count as a stitch). Place one front post double crochet around stitch directly under chain 1. *Place one half-double crochet above next stitch. Place one front post double crochet around next stitch.* Repeat from *to* until end of round. Slip stitch into top of first stitch.

Repeat rounds 2 through 5 until hat is desired length.

Finishing

To seam together the top of the hat as shown above, turn hat inside out and flatten it to line up the stitches. Single crochet the stitches together, making sure to keep it aligned. Turn hat right side out when done.

Add pom poms to each corner of the top of the hat and you are done!
