I had so much fun designing this Snowy Mountain Beanie!!  I was inspired by my Rainbow Dash Blanket Pattern and using one skein of Caron Cakes in “Cake Pop”, I was able to make 3 hats in the same colors, but different color striping… I loved this so much and if you have followed me long… You know how much I love self striping yarn!!

Materials:

Yarn:  120 yards worsted weight yarn, shown here in Caron Cakes “Cake Pop”.  Ones 383 yd skein will make all three hats!!  What a bargain!!

Hook:  J

Size:

Brim 19″ unstreached, Crown 21″ unstreatched, Top to bottom 9″ unstreatched. If making large circumferences, you may want to up your hook size.

Gauge:

2″ x 2″ swatch = 6 double crochet x 3 rows – Make a 4″ x 4″ swatch and then measure the middle 2″ x 2″ to get a good gauge. A small swatch won’t give a good test.

Don’t forget the gauge is important for the fit of the hat!

Stitches:

Sp – Space     St – Stitch     Sl St – Slip Stitch     Ch – Chain     Sc – Single Crochet     Dc – Double Crochet     Sk St – Skip Stitch   Trc – Triple Crochet     Bl – Back Loop

FPTrc – Front Post Triple Crochet~ Yarn over 2 times, insert hook around designated post starting in the front, go around the back of the stitch and around to the front of the other side of the stitch, draw up a loop. Pull through 2 loops 3 times.

*TIPS*  Make sure you make your starting chain even and not tight.  This will result in the brim being to small.  Also when working on the brim rounds 1-5, you will want to make sure you do not crochet snug stitches.

**If you have trouble with the starting chain and first 2 rows being to tight to fit around your head, go up another size hook for these rounds only after checking gauge

**Please check your gauge before starting

 


Instructions:

Ch 49

Row 1:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across. Join to beginning sc with sl st, be very careful not to twist the work when joining. =48 sc

Now you will be working in the round and this will be the right side facing

Round 2:  Ch 3 (counts as dc now and throughout), dc around, join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. =48 dc

Round 3:  Ch 1, sc in same sp, Fptrc around the next dc in previous round, *sc in next st, fptrc around next st*, repeat *to*, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 24 sc & 24 fptrc *tip-the st where you fptrc will appear to have a sk st in the top of the round due the going around the st… make sure your so’s go in the next st or you will end up with too many sts.

Round 4: Ch 3, dc around, join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. = 48 dc

Round 5:  Ch 1, sc in 1st st, fptrc around the next st 2 rounds below(see photo), *sc in next st, fptrc around the next st 2 rounds below*, repeat *to* around. join with st st to beginning sc. = 24 sc & 24 fptrc

FPTrc4

Round 6:  Ch 3, dc around, join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. = 48 dc

Rounds 7-10:  Repeat rounds 5 & 6

Round 11: Ch 1, *sc in st, fptrc around  the next st 2 rounds below, sk st, fptrc around the next st 2 rounds below*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 24 fptrc & 12 sc.

Round 12:  Ch 3, dc around, join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. = 36 dc

Round 13:  Ch 1, *sc in st, fptrc around next st 2 rounds below 2 times*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 24 fptrc & 12 sc

Round 14:  Ch 3, dc around, join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. =36 dc

Round 15:  Ch 1, * sc in st, fptrc around next 2 fptrc’s 2 rounds below(decrease made)*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 12 fptrc & 12 sc

Round 16: Ch 3, dc around, join with sl st to top of beginning ch 3. = 24 dc

Round 17:  Ch 1, *sc in st, fptrc around next 2 fptrc’s 2 rounds below(decrease made)*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning sc. =6 fptrc & 6 sc

Round 18:  Ch 1, sc around, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 12 sc

Round 19:  Ch 1, *sc in st, sk st*, repeat *to* around, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 6 sc

Finish off leaving tail for drawing top together

With tail sew top together and finish off.

BRIM

Join yarn to any st in beginning ch with right side facing.

Round 1:  Ch 1, sc around, join with sl st to beginning sc.  =48sc *make sure to sc loosely so hat is not tight.

Round 2-5:  Ch 1, sc in bl of each st around, join with sl st to beginning sc. = 48 sc

Finish off and weave in ends…..

  1. Linda Byerley :

    Downloaded this pattern two weeks ago and have made myself two of the Snowy Mountain Beanies and one for my
    husband. It is my favorite beanie pattern. Easy and the hat is warm. Thank you.

  2. Elena,

    My stitch gauge swatch measured okay with a K hook. However, the chain 49 is really short. No way will it stretch around my head. I have switched to an M hook and the chain 49 measures 16″ not stretched, but it will just barely stretch around my head. Should I stick with the M hook, or should I go with a K and just add more stitches?

    At a gauge of 2″ = 6 double crochets, then wouldn’t 48 Dc = 16″ unstreatched for the crown? I’d think it would take 63 Dc to equal the stated crown measurement of 21″ at the 2″ = 6 Dc (or 1″ = 3 Dc_.

    Am I having a really bad math day? I usually just have to go up one hook size to get a correct sizing.

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs :

      I would go up a size hook to M… Crochet your chain loosely… that is where a lot of issues are in the hat when the chain is a bit tight… The double crochet will be different sizing than the chain… so you can’t really calculate the math with the chain.. you can also do a foundation sc for the beginning

      • Thank you! I am using the M hook and it is working out fine. Thanks for the nice pattern. I forgot to mention that I’m using the Caron Cakes yarn. On my next hat I think I’ll go down to an L hook. Since most cancer patients have lost their hair, I assume they need a little smaller hat size than usual.

  3. Joyce Lockett Powers :

    How do I adjust size for hat to fit child?
    Thanks

  4. I love this hat! Thank you for the pattern.
