Adult Small Beanie Free Crochet Pattern!


Hello! Everyone needs a beanie, right? I decided to crochet a beanie for myself and I wanted to use one of my favorite yarns, Caron Simply Soft. I think this hat is very comfy and very soft too! Scroll down for the free pattern or click here to purchase the pdf.

If you don't want to leave your hat blank, add an applique! How about a cute little kitty cat? Ziggy inspired this one and it's a free pattern, click here for the Kitty Cat Applique pattern.


Or you can come up with your own way to decorate your beanie. I would love to see what ya'll do with yours!
