Can I adapt crochet beanie patterns?

Certainly! A lot of these patterns are easy enough for you to adapt. Sometimes, you see a pattern that you love, but you would rather use a different yarn thickness, I get it.

Here are a few ways to adapt a pattern:

  • Use a thicker yarn with the same stitch pattern repeat, but with less stitches.
  • Know what the head circumference is and crochet a swatch to find out how many stitches per inch you need to get the right size.
  • Got a yarn that’s thinner than that one the pattern calls for? Try making it double strand.

How do you size a crochet beanie?

Generally, depending on yarn type and stitch used, the hat circumference should be at least 2” (5 cm) smaller than your head. Especially if you’re using yarns with a lot of stretch in them.

This is what we call negative ease. But what does that even mean? It literally means that the hat needs to be smaller than your head, to fit right. If you make it big, it will fall off your head easily.

Here are the recommend hat sizes:

What yarns are best for crochet beanie patterns?

Different patterns call for different yarns. But I prefer soft acrylic or wool-blend yarns that’s at least medium weight. Here is my recommend list:

Yarn nameBrandContent
I Love This YarnHobby Lobby100% Acrylic
Basic Stitch Anti PillingLion Brand100% Acrylic
Hue & MeLion BrandWool-Blend
Wool EaseLion BrandWool-Blend
Cozy WoolLoops & ThreadsWool-Blend

I prefer these yarns because they make comfortable hats and build up super quick. Not to mention, they are affordable as well, making them great cost benefit options.
