Crochet Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the FamilyCrochet Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Family

They’re fashionable. They’re famous. They’re those casual-yet-confident slouchy beanies worn by lots of big movie, television, and rock stars when they’re out and about. And now you can crochet your own celebrity beanies! These seven patterns by Lisa Gentry are based on the styles snapped by paparazzi from East Coast to West. Choose from five fabulous fashions for adults. Small children will look camera-ready in a semi-plaid beanie, while older children will adore their fun, textured toppers. Pair any of these beanies with large sunglasses, and let the world wonder–who’s that celebrity?

    Found your site by accident on you tube….thank you so much for your crochet videos…That is basically the easy way I can crochet by following along with the video as I am a crochet beginner. I made the baby beanie hat and will try to make some of your other patterns as well. Your instructions are really easy to follow along. Thanks again.

    I just found your tutorials on Youtube by accident. I am so glad that \i did. I have been crocheting for a couple of years but i am very slow. I consider myself as a beginner to Easy crocheter. I really like you tutorials, they are so easy to follow. I am a visual and tactial learner. I am left handed as well.
    Thank you for your time.

    This is an amazing pattern. It worked out great.

  6. Doreka says:

    Paula dear I am so relieved. Atlas I can now crochet an adult hat. Your instructions were easy for me to follow and it is my first hat ever in life. I tried it over and over for two days and got it right. As a matter of fact, I have just completed the first one for my 6year old (it’s past midnight in East Africa) and she will wear it tomorrow. Thank you so much I look forward to more challenging patterns.

  7. Peggy says:

    You taught me to crochet a hat! I found your video on YouTube for this hat and I was able to follow along. I am thrilled! I have always struggled with patterns of any sort, therefore I was always just making couch throws and scarves with a double crochet stitch because that’s all I knew how to do. I am a “learn by watching” type person rather than trying to read a pattern. Can’t wait to watch and learn more from you. 🙂

    Hi Paula,
    I wanted to thank you for your wonderful tutorials. You taught me to crochet and im addicted.
    I made 2 of these beanies with roses on the side for my best friend and myself. We get amazing comments about how pretty they are.
    I have searched all your patterns and cant find a puff stitch beanie anywhere. Do you have a tutorial for puff beanie? Other people offer tutorials for puff beanie but im afraid i can only watch learn and listen with you. You are an incredible teacher. That comes from someone who failed needlework at school and has never ever made anything until now.
    Thank you for giving so generously.
    God bless you x

    Fabby pattern – just made myself a lovely warm beanie this evening after getting very cold waiting for a train earlier and realising I was missing an important item of clothing! Thanks so much for sharing
