This Mesh Crochet Beanie Pattern can be made from a child’s size up to an adult size. This is an easy pattern to make and I love the look of it!
For Visual Learners crochet along with me in the Mesh Crochet Beanie Video Tutorial
1 x 100gm ball of Panda Magnum Soft 8 Ply Yarn which can be purchased online from Lincraft Australia. From this 100gm ball of yarn you can make two adult beanies.
(Substitute Yarn – sport weight)
1 x button
98 cm/37.5 inch strip of double sided satin ribbon
Mesh Crochet Beanie Measurements
Adult Size - the crown (top of beanie ) has been made to 48 cm/21 inches but with all beanies it will stretch another 3-4 cm/3-3.5 inches from the original 48 cm/21 inches once placed on the head.
Smaller Sizes – start the pattern from the written instructions and end the crown (top of the beanie) at any point on a round that calls for ’1 sc into each st around’ to get the size that you want, make 1 sl st into the next st to complete the crown then move onto ‘making the sides’ part of the pattern.
Stitches & Terms
This pattern is using U.S. stitches & terms. To convert stitches go to my Crochet Stitch Conversion Chart.
ch = chain
ch-1 = 1 chain stitch previously made
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
st = stitch
sk = skip
beg = beginning
sl st = slip stitch
rep = repeat
sp = space
sts = stitches
rnd = round
Notes: Place a stitch marker into 1st st made on each round. We will be working in continuous rounds which means that we are working around in a spiral motion and NOT joining at the end of each round.
Starting at the crown (top of the beanie)
ch 3, join into 1st ch with a sl st to form a ring.
Rnd 1: working over yarn tail as you go; 8 sc into ring. (8 sts)
Rnd 2: 2 sc into each sc around. (16 sts)
Rnd 3: * 1 sc into next sc, 2 sc into next sc, rep from * around. (24 sts)
Rnd 4: 1 sc into each sc around.
Rnd 5: Rep Rnd 3. (36 sts)

Weave center yarn tail in with a yarn needle.
Making the Sides
Rnd 13: (ch 1, 1 sc, ch 1) into same sp as sl st (this counts as 1 dc st), ch 1, * sk 1 st, 1 dc into next st, ch 1, rep from * around, join with a sl st into ch-1 made on top of sc at beg.
Rnds 14 – 20: (ch 1, 1 sc, ch 1) into 1st dc (this counts as 1 dc st), ch 1, *sk ch-1 sp, 1 dc into next dc, ch 1, rep from * around, join with a sl st into ch-1 made on top of sc at beg.
If you want the beanie sides longer then repeat rnd 18 as many times as you need to here.
Rnd 21: ch 1, sc into same sp as ch-1, 1 sc into each ch-1 sp and dc st around; making last sc into last ch-1 sp, join with a sl st into 1 st sc.
Weave in yarn tails with a yarn needle.
With front of beanie facing you, find the approx. center of beanie and on rnd 18, weave one end of ribbon in and out of the ch-1 spaces right around the whole beanie until you have your ribbon end back around to the front. Make sure your ribbon ends are even and tie a bow. It’s better to have the beanie on the head when you tie the bow. Trim or tie a knot on the ends of ribbon if you like to neaten them up.
Optional – Before sewing a button on you need to make sure you place the beanie on the head and tie the bow to the same measurement of the head because the bow can’t be adjusted after you’ve sewn a button to the middle of it.

All the best,
Fast, fun, and relaxing, crocheting a hat is a rewarding way to practice basic skills, try out new stitches, or tackle particularly challenging patterns. Hats invite experimentation and creativity. The finished piece is so small that pulling out rows of stitches or going all the way back to the beginning of a project is never too heartbreaking, and making more than one is a natural urge! Crochet Hats! features 15 original patterns for pretty, new looks — classic as well as cutting edge, sunny and light as well as cozy and warm. Created for every skill level, Candi Jensen’s hat designs also encourage stitchers to venture beyond their comfort zones and experiment with new yarns, different color combinations, and more complicated stitches. Hats provide the perfect opportunity for playing with new ideas. From cables to brims to beads, Jensen’s hats feature something for every head. An adorable baby cap makes a lovely shower gift, a colorful cotton sun hat screens summer beach rays, and diamond shapes on angora and wool sparkle on the ski slopes. Many designs will work for men too, with a bit of color adjustment.
