It’s “Beanie” Time of Year!!!
Even though the weather has been unusually fantastic here in Wisconsin for the last week or so, it is now starting to take on very “fall-like” temperatures! Yesterday, was just beautiful. And, we were so thankful because my niece was married and the whole occasion (including the weather) was magical. But, today, it is quite a bit cooler (52 degrees right now) and very overcast and gray. So time to think “Beanies”. To get us going on all kinds of beanies, the first beanie that I would like to show you is called the “Katie Beanie with a Faux Fur Pompon”! It is so cute, versatile, stylish, and easy to whip up. I am also in the process of writing up a pattern for a matching “Infinity Scarf” to go with it. So be sure to check for that in the near future!!
Here is the pattern and I hope you try it! Also, I would love to see what you make with it, so be sure to use the hashtag #lakeviewcottagekids so we can all see you creations!

Lakeview Cottage Kids
Adult – Woman
- 1 skein Aran weight (#4) LionBrand “Heartland” Yarn; Color: Grand Canyon
- Button of Your Choice (I used a 1 1/8 inch button) (And this is to secure the pompon to the top of the hat.)
- Faux Fur Pompon
- Crochet Hook, Size H/500 mm
- Crochet Hook, Size I/5.50 mm
– 1 Stitch Marker
– Small Yarn Needle (Used for working in loose yarn ends and for attaching the pompon and button.)
Using the H Hook, 4 single crochet in the back loop only rows = 2 rows of ribbing and is 1 1/4 inch wide
(I crochet pretty loosely. If you crochet tighter, you may want to adjust to a larger hook to get your desired size.)
Using the H Hook, Chain 8.
Row 1: In the second chain from the hook, work a single crochet. Work a single crochet in each of the chains. Ch 1. Turn. (7 sc)
Row 2: In the first sc, work a single crochet. Work 1 single crochet in the back loop only in the next stitch and in each stitch across until the last stitch. Work 1 sc in the last stitch. Ch 1. Turn. (7 st)
Row 3 – 60: Repeat Row 2 until the length of your ribbing is 19 inches. This for me is 60 rows. (2 inches less than the circumference of an average adult woman’s head.) If you would like to make the hat for another size, just measure the circumference of the adult, teen or child’s head and make the ribbing 2 inches less than that circumference number.
When you have completed the last row on the ribbing, seam the short ends of the ribbing, using a slip stitch. Do NOT cut the yarn. (Refer to video tutorial.). When you have completed the seam turn the ribbing so that the seam is on the inside.
Body of the Hat
Switch to the I Hook.
Round 1: Single crochet in the end of each row of ribbing all the way around. Slip stitch to the first single crochet of the round. (From now on you will not slip stitch to the first stitch of the round. You will just continuously go from one round to the other.)
Round 2: Place a stitch marker. Work 1 single crochet in the first stitch. Work 1 double crochet in the second stitch. *Work 1 single crochet in the next stitch. Work 1 double crochet in the next stitch.” Repeat from * to * all the way around. Keep moving your stitch marker up each time your end a round.
Continue doing this sequence of single crochet and double crochet, until the measurement of the hat, from the bottom of the ribbing to the top of the body of the hat is 9 inches. ( If you would like to make your hat a little “slouchier”, you can add more length. 1/2 to 1 inch would be nice.)
Finishing and Closing the Top of the Hat:
End the body of your hat at the stitch marker.
Round 1: Single crochet in the first stitch. Skip one stitch. Single crochet in the next stitch. Skip one stitch. Single crochet in the next stitch. Repeat this sequence until you have 7 stitches left. Finish off, leaving about 8 inches of yarn.
Using the yarn needle, gather the top of the hat by doing a “running stitch” through each of the single crochets in the last (top) row of the hat. Pull gently, until the opening at the top of the hat closes. Pull it snug but not super tight. Knot your yarn and work in the ends at the top and at the bottom of your hat.
Attach the pompon to the top of the hat using the the “Button” Method. (Refer to my video tutorial on this.) Click on the photo/video above to see the video tutorial!)
That’s it!! Enjoy your lovely new hat!!
