Skater Beanie Pattern

CIMG2475

Here is my tested and revised Skater Beanie pattern. It's available FREE on Ravelry here and via the below link as a FREE pdf download.

free pattern on Ravelry



It has complete sizing instructions so that you can make a custom-fit beanie to fit any head. There are also instructions for whether you want to make the hat with stripes, or without - so it's completely up to you how you want to do it.

The pattern calls for dk or sport weight yarn, but you can actually use any yarn and any hook with this because you work out your measurements as you go along.

Please ensure that you have a tape measure to hand because you do have to take some key measurements and work a few things out before you begin.

The pattern may seem a bit long, but it contains loads of pictures and there's a few things I explain in a lot of depth - in particular the sizing, as it's key to the pattern working.

Please have a read through the pattern before you attempt it for the first time.

So download, and have some fun!

Going to give this one a shot. I did a beanie last year for my older son during Ravelympics...let's just say there is a reason mama doesn't make hats. ;) I would LOVE to make hats, though.

My fiance asked if i could make him a hat but i have been having problems making him one. i am hopeful that this pattern will help me. i just began crocheting and want to learn to knit.

I've got a question. In the directions, it says to make D the width of 5 rows shorter than B, and then add the stripes. What if C is equivalent to B and we can't make it shorter? I've got measurements that are equal, and D shorter than B is 2 inches. Help?

Hi Logan

Do you understand what stitches such as single crochet and double crochet are? So you mean it's just about understanding the abbreviations? Or do you need help learning the stitches too?
