Simple stripe crochet beanie hat pattern. This pattern is for a child-sized, however you can modify it for other sizes as well.
When the weather started getting cold, my son wore his bear hat (non-crochet type hat) to school. He has always loved that hat. The first day wearing it to school, kids must have made fun of him because he refuses to wear it anymore.
He came home that day requesting I make him a hat to wear.
I attempted one hat and it totally bombed. Tried to work a hat in rows instead of the round. Just didn’t work out right. So, I went with a beanie type hat.
Since this is made in a child’s size, crown circle diameter is between 6.25 and 6.5 inches. The hat height is between 7.75 – 8 inches. Make sure when you are working this pattern that is your measurements.

I also did not cut my yarn between color changes. Whichever one I was not using, I just crocheted over. Makes for fewer ends to weave in.

At this point, the color you don’t want to use for the edge of the hat, you can cut and weave in the ends. Continue on with the color that you want for the edge.
Row 1: Chain 6. Single Crochet into the back loop of the second chain from the hook and single crochet into the back loops only across. (5 stitches) To secure the row to the hat, SC2TOG the next two stitches of the hat.
Row 2: Turn your work. (no chain needed) Single Crochet in the back loops only across. (5 stitches).
Row 3: Turn your work. Chain 1. Single Crochet across in the back loops only. (5 stitches) Make securing stitch like before.
Rows 4 – 72: Repeat rows 2 to 3.
Slip stitch at the end of row 72 to secure it. Cut your yarn but leave enough on it to sew the edging together. Using the yarn needle, sew the edges together and weave in your ends.
