Textured Single Crochet Beanie Pattern Using Bobble Stitch – Free Hat Pattern

This is a free single crochet beanie pattern that uses the single crochet bobble stitch. It is a quick and easy beanie pattern suitable for the whole family.


You know the feeling when an idea strikes and you have to try it straight away?

That was exactly the case when the idea of a single crochet bobble stitch popped into my head!

I had to grab a hook and yarn and bring this idea to life! And I am glad I did!

Single crochet bobble stitch is a gorgeous textured crochet stitch that will elevate your crochet project!

That’s why I used this stitch to make this single crochet beanie – Crochet Napoly Hat.

It is a super versatile crochet beanie that has a super comfortable double brim. It is worked in half double crochet stitch so it works up faster than other hat brims.

The top of the hat uses a different color which makes the hat looked like it was dipped in a pot of paint!

Of course every good crochet beanie has to be topped off with a fluffy Pom Pom!

SINGLE CROCHET BOBBLE STITCH USED FOR BEANIE

I’m really fond of this textured crochet stitch because it is so easy! Without a doubt I love texture but sometimes you need complicated crochet stitches to achieve it.

As well as that, they are notorious yarn eaters and create quite a dense fabric.

As a result I have been playing around with single crochet stitch and applied the technique of a bobble stitch to it- that’s when single crochet bobble stitch (sc bo) has been born.

Not only does this easy crochet stitch work in rounds but it also creates a lovely texture when worked in rows.

SINGLE CROCHET BEANIE – NAPOLY HAT DESIGN PROCESS

This chunky crochet hat is giving me all the feels. It reminds me of a cold winter evening with marshmallows melting on top of a steaming cup of hot chocolate.

The double brim of the hat is so warm and the slouchy top gives it that cosy relaxed feel. I topped my hat off with faux fur pom pom.

There are some great handmade shops that offer faux fur pom poms at such a reasonable price.

I used Yarn and Colours Super Charming yarn for my hat. It is a lovely yarn to crochet with. It creates a lovely texture paired up with the lovely single crochet bobble stitch.

Other yarns that would work just as good include Scheepjes River Washed XL or Stone Washed XL.

Yarn and Colours Super Charming [chunky/bulky weight; 75m per 50g ball; 66% cotton and 34% acrylic] x 2 (2, 3, 3, 4) balls. (for the hat pictured I have used 2 balls in Cream and 1 ball in Old Pink)

OR 100 (130, 180, 220, 280) m of substitute yarn

sl st- slip stitch

sc bo– single crochet bobble stitch- watch video tutorial here

PATTERN NOTES

Pattern starts with working the double brim. The double brim is worked in rounds of hdc in tlo joined with sl st at the end of each round.

The double brim is then joined in round by sewing up the first and last row together to create the hat band.

The body of the hat is then worked around the log edge of the double brim.

The first sc bo round is worked around the beginning 2 ch sts of the double brim band.

The body of the hat is slouchy, the last 3 rounds are decreased to make it easier when sewing up the top opening.

Check out the video tutorial below where I explain the hat construction, show you how to work hdc in tlo, where to pick up sc bo stitches and how to work the invisible decrease.

SIZE ADJUSTMENTS

  • The beginning chain determines the height of the double brim. To make the double brim taller add any number of sts to the beginning chain.
  • The number of rounds of the double brim determines the finished circumference of the hat, to adjust the circumference, add/take away the number of rounds.
  • To adjust the finished height of the hat, add/take away rounds of the sc bo rounds
