Easy Peasy Free Large Adult (Men's size) Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern

Are you looking for an easy peasy beanie to whip up for an adult male or large adult female?  Then this pattern is for you! It doesn’t get much easier than this and they make simple easy gifts.  Since this is done in Double Crochet instead of half double or single crochet like many it builds up really quickly.  I use the Easy Peasy Beanies for the majority of my hats as a base to build on or embellish.  So here it is. Are you looking for this in another size? Check out the whole family of sizes in the free Easy Peasy Double Crochet Beanie pattern page here at cRAfterchick.com.

Easy Peasy Free Large Adult (Men’s size) Double Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern Notes

Project requires:

Medium to normal weight yarn (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use baby yarn for extra soft beanie hats too!)
“J” hook (6.0 mm)
Scissors or Yarn Cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends

Abbreviations used in this pattern:

ch – chain
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet 

Pattern Instructions:

*Note: This project is worked in the round on the base of a magic circle ring. If you do not know how to do this, please see tutorial here from: yarntomato on CrochetMe

Round 1: In a magic circle, ch 2 (does not count as a dc throughout pattern as I use this to make a more seamless appearance in my hats) before placing 12 dc in to the circle. Pull circle tightly closed. Join with sl st in top of beginning st of round. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2 before placing *2 dc in first st and 2 dc in each of the following 11 st around. Join with sl st in top of 1st st. (24 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next st.* Repeating * pattern for next 22 st around. Join with sl st in top of 1st st. (36 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 2 st.* Repeating * pattern for next 33 st around.  Join with sl st in top of 1st st. (48 dc)
Round 5: Ch 2 before making *2 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in next 3 st.* Repeating * pattern for next 44 st around. Join with sl st in top of 1st st.  (60 dc)
Round 6 -13: Ch 2 before placing 1 dc in 1st st and 1 dc in each of the  remaining 59 st around. Join with sl st to top of beginning st. (60 dc)
Round 14: Ch 1 before placing 1 sc in 1st st and 1 sc in each of the remaining 59 st around. Join with sl st in top of 1st st. (60 sc)

Cut yarn leaving a short tail to finish off the project. Pull tail through and weave in ends with your large blunt eye yarn / tapestry needle before cutting off any extra length left behind to fasten off hat.That’s it!

Want a trim or contrast color? Some of cRAfterChick.com’s patterns call for a contrast trim to be added to the bottom of the beanie. You can easily add a contrast trim by adding an additional round of sc to end of hat in new yarn color or for a wider trim, subtract one dc round from Rounds 6-13 portion then add that to the end after in between sc rows in contrast color.

The sky is the limit on possibilities or ideas to make each your own, unique and special from stripes to adding features or appliques etc.  Drop by our free pattern section to find some of cRAfterChick’s ideas to make your project extra fun or special.

  1. I made my first beanie! Thank you!! I’m so excited over it.

    • cRAfterChick says:

      That’s awesome! I made my first one almost a year ago now. Be warned they are addictive to make. lol I have made over 100 hats now in past year. Oops.

  2. Awesome pattern. Thank you the sky is the limit for this easy pattern for the things you can add to it.

  3. So happy I stumbled upon you site. Thank you.

  4. Glad I found this need to whip up some hats for the guys for Christmas.

  5. Thank you for making these patterns. I wanted to let you know that I’m in the process of making a LOT of these to donate to a transitional housing center here in town. They work up fast and are very warm.
    Thank you!

    • cRAfterChick says:

      Thank you. What a wonderful thing to do! I’ve been making up hats for the kids with Autoimmune Arthritis that I know but hope to work on fun hats for the children with cancer at local hospital in the new year.

  6. Thank you for the free pattern. I have made two beanies now. I am a beginner. This is just the second thing I have made! I looked through lots of patterns before choosing this one and I’m so glad I did. I hope to make bunches and bunches more!!

    I have made two of these beanies, one they small adult size and the other the large adult size. Although they look great they don’t seem near as long as yours do in your pics. They only come to just above my eyebrows. I have 14 rows and am using a K sized hook. (Couldn’t find my J). Could this difference be what is making them a bit smaller?

  8. Bhenderson says:

    I made this beanie and it was very cute. I used the 6.0 hook and mine was a child sized beanie. What did I do wrong?

    • cRAfterChick says:

      First double check a few things:
      1. You are using a 6.0 mm US crochet hook J/10 or UK 4 as it is called
      2. You are using a normal weight yarn. Less ply yarn like baby yarn or bulky yarn will end up with different results than in pattern. Smaller for less ply and larger for higher ply.
      3. You are making the pattern in US double crochet for dc and not UK dc which is single crochet US.
      If you are doing all the above like in pattern you should not have a problem at all. I have made over a dozen in men’s size this past year from this pattern and they come out slightly slouchy on my head.
      If you are trouble shooting your end result and are following above, you might want to print out this great chart from Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hat-sizing-chart—newborn-through-mens-sizes You can see how big your increase circle should be on the hat before doing standard rounds around until you reached the required length. I hope this helps.
