30 Minute Hand Beanie by Nicki's Homemade Crafts - Free Crochet Pattern #freecrochetpattern #crochet #beanie #hat #quick #easy I recently went thru my yarn stash and found some Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn skeins I had stored far in the back. I pulled it out and thought, maybe I could create a beanie with it; with just my hands. So I did and I created this free crochet pattern I call the 30 Minute Hand Beanie.

Seriously, it only took me 30 minutes to create this awesome beanie. And it is easy to make. Even a beginner can make this as it only uses single crochets.

To make it even easier I created a full video tutorial showing every step on how to this beanie in under 30 minutes. You simply need one skein of bulky yarn and your hands.

I can’t believe I have never tried this before. But now I know what to make for my friends and family members for Christmas. The 30 Minute Hand Beanie is super cozy and makes a perfect fit for a teen or adult size head.

And yes, it is a bit loose, but that is what you achieve when you make a beanie using just your hands. But because you only use single crochets the holes are not big and still provide plenty of warmth.

In fact, my son really likes the red one I made and now wants to wear it all the time. If you saw my Facebook video of this beanie, you properly saw how I tickled him while wearing the 30 Minute Hand Beanie.

Now, one important aspect to keep in mind, is that everyone has different sized hands. Therefore, your beanie will properly look different than mine. Comparing my fingers with a hook, they are properly about the same as a size 12mm hook (no guaranty though).

So, if you do not feel like making this beanie with your hands, try a hook size that provides with the same gauge as mine. Also, if you would like to make this beanie for a different size head, be sure to check out my video as well as this very detailed guide on how to adjust any beanie pattern.
