Finished Size

The finished size of this beanie is an 18" circumference not stretched and a 9" height. The hat will stretch, so it is recommended to make it about 2" smaller than the usual 20" size. When the correct gauge is followed, the beanie will fit most teens to adult women.

Band of Beanie

The band of the beanie is worked using single crochets in the back loop to create a ridged effect. Follow the pattern instructions to create the band before moving on to the main part of the beanie.

Main Part of The Beanie

The main part of the beanie involves several rounds of stitching to create a textured and stylish look. Follow the pattern instructions for each round to achieve the desired result.
