How to Crochet a Beanie – Ribbed Beanie
How to crochet a beanie? In this tutorial, I show you how to crochet a ribbed beanie using the HDC st that is extremely easy to follow. This beanie is more time-consuming than it might seem, but it is great practice if you’re new to working with the half-double crochet stitch. The colors used in this pattern can easily be exchanged to fit whatever color scheme you like.

- Crochet two short edges together using SL stitches to connect them.
- Cut and tie off yarn.
- Cut a strand of yarn roughly 1 foot long and weave it around the top of the beanie (this is where all of your tails are).
- Cinch the two tails of the strand of yarn and tie them together tightly (this should close the gap in the top of your beanie).
