The Duck Hill Beanie

Y’all. This beanie was somewhat of an elusive creature when I first started it. I had a specific vision in my head and tried so. hard. to get it to be what I envisioned and I just was not happy with it.

I tried something else on my last try, ready to throw my hook and yarn out the window. It’s not exactly what I saw in my head, but the main section of the beanie is so pretty, and shows off such a stunning texture, I knew I had to keep it. And honestly, I’m obsessed. It becomes so easy once you catch on that I’ve already made four adult versions, and two each in a child and toddler size.

I loved this beanie so much I wrote a boho pattern that is based solely off the top portion and i’m in love with that one too. Because, It’s almost July, I am in full swing of making allllll the beanies. Beanie weather or bust.

Scroll for the pattern.

MATERIALS;

1 skein I love this yarn

H hook, and I hook.

Scissors

Yarn needle

Pompom, and tag (optional)

ABBREVIATIONS;

CH – chain

HDSLST – half double slip stitch

ST – stitch

HDC – half double crochet

SC – single crochet

DC – double crochet

HDC DEC – half double crochet decrease

PATTERN NOTES;

This is an intermediate level pattern.

This beanie is worked from the bottom up so you will be starting with the brim and working your way up to the crown.

You will always ch 1 and join to the first st. Your first stitch of the round will always be placed in the same stitch as the join. The amount of rows of your brim should be the same as the amount of stitches in your body.

During body rounds 3-11 (or 3-9 for child and 3-8 for toddler) you will always be working in the sc sts from the previous rounds. There will be directions to skip a st in round 2, but after that you will always be skipping the DC sts.

There are four decrease rounds. You will Hdc in the first stitch, then HDC two sts together. over the next two stitches, and repeat this around for all of the decrease rounds. (feel free to implement your own decreasing methods here if you have ones you like better.)

***** if you have to add or decrease rounds that don’t use the stitch count provided, you must have an even number. *****

SIZING NOTES –

Womens should fit teens and women. Child should comfortably fit 4-9 year olds and toddler size should fit 1-3 year olds.

Remember to use your H Hook for the Brim, and the I Hook for the body, both are labeled accordingly. If you crochet tight, consider going up a hook size, or add 4 brim rows, and to your st count for the size. If you crochet rather loose, consider going down a hook size or you can subtract 4 sts from your brim rows, and st count.

  1. Hi! Beautiful pattern. Thank you so much for sharing! I just started mine and I am not getting that v stitch look on my brim. Should I be doing the rows in the BLO?
