Chunky Cabled Crochet Beanie Pattern

I am so proud of this hat pattern! I usually knit hats because I prefer the knit look… but I know you guys have been asking for a crochet beanie pattern and I really didn’t want to disappoint! I was waiting until I came up with a pattern that I just loved before sharing it. It took a while, but I finally designed a crochet hat pattern that I couldn’t wait to post! This hat is chunky and warm, and most of all super cute! It builds up quick too, which means you can knock off a few holiday gifts within hours.

Row 1:  CH10, SC in second ch from hook and in each remaining ch, turn (9 sts).

Rows 2-54: CH1, SC in blo of each sc, turn (9 sts).

Brim will measure approximately 18 inches unstretched.

Do not fasten off.  Fold brim in half, lining up stitches of foundation chain row and last row to form a loop.  CH1 and seam ends together by slip stitching through stitches of the foundation chain row and last row (blo).  Continue to Body of Hat.

Body of Hat:

The body of the hat is worked in the round along the brim that was just completed.

Round 1: CH 2 (does not count as a stitch); working around the brim, HDC 60 stitches evenly spaced and join to first HDC with a slip stitch (60 sts).

Round 2: CH 2 and work one HDC in each stitch (including first one) all the way around. Join to first HDC with slip stitch (60 sts).

Round 6:  CH2 and work one HDC in each stitch all the way around. Join to first HDC with slip stitch (60 sts).

Round 7:  CH2; *HDC in next 4 hdc, work FPtr around next 6 FPtr; repeat from * until the end of the round.  Join to first HDC wiwth slip stitch (60 sts).

Round 8:  CH2 and work one HDC in each stitch all the way around. Join to first HDC with slip stitch (60 sts).

Round 9: CH2; *HDC in next 4 hdc, skip next 3 FPtr, work FPtr around next 3 FPtr; working in front of FPtr just made, work FPtr around each skipped FPtr; repeat from * until the end of the round.  Join to first HDC with slip stitch (60 sts).

Repeat rounds 4-9 once more and continue to Shaping the Crown and Finishing.

Shaping the Crown and Finishing:

Round 1: CH2; *HDC in next  hdc, HDC2Tog, HDC in next 7 stitches; repeat from * until the end of the round.  Join to first HDC with slip stitch (54 sts).

Round 2:  CH2; *HDC in next 3 hdc, work FPtr around next 6 FPtr; repeat from * until the end of the round.  Join to first HDC wiwth slip stitch (54 sts).

Cut yarn, leaving a 10” tail.

Thread yarn onto tapestry needle, and weave through front loop of all stitches. Pull tight (like a drawstring) – this will clost the top of the hat. Making sure that top of hat is completely closed, secure tail on the inside of the hat.

Attach a pompom to the top of the hat (optional) and weave in all loose ends.

  1. Gorgeous. was just looking for one of these. I’m going to try it. is that you in the green hat? Thank you for writing patterns.

  2. This looks like the perfect hat for me and I am a lover of crochet. I have bought the pattern but I will have to wait till my shoulder heals.

  3. I’m confused In round 3 of the body are you actually working 6 FPtr in between the ** Then in round 5, how do I work FPtr around the 3 (from round 3) that are behind the other 3? (If I am indeed suppose to be working 6 FPtr in round 3) Pictures or a video would be hugely helpful. I keep having to undo my work because something I’m doing isn’t quite right.
    Sorry, my question is confusing even to me! 🤪

  4. Hi, when shaping the crown, where it says hdc2tog in the next 7 HDC, My next 7 are not hdc but they are the fp from the prior row. I’m confused. Please help.

      1. Hi, I’m confused again on shaping the crown. It says to fptc into the fptc but on round 2 it’s not a fptc. This means this will be off on each row thereafter as well. Can you please review this and advise? dying to finish this hat. Thanks!
