How To Make Bean Stitch Crochet Hat – Free Pattern

The Everyday Bean Beanie is a simple and fast free bean stitch crochet hat pattern. I used a variegated yarn that was bulky and made it a very masculine-looking beanie.

It was a Saturday afternoon, when I strolled through my local Michael’s store. I was looking for a yarn that would work as a male color.

And therefore would work for a beanie for my husband. But he is a very picky person when it comes to clothing. He only likes certain colors – earth colors.

So, when I found this new yarn – Izaac Mizrahi Craft by Premier Yarns, I knew I had to buy several skeins of them.

Thinking about the current sale at that time, I remember getting 3 for the price of 2.

Considering my husband would love that color combination I knew he would wear the beanie that I had in my mind as a new pattern.

Bean Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern Details

The Everyday Bean Beanie features the bean stitch which might seem difficult when looking at the pattern. However, it is actually very easy to crochet.

I really love the way how the yarn makes the bean stitch crochet hat look. It is so special as the color changes determine the look of it. You will not need special stitches to make this beanie stand out.

The yarn itself is bulky, but very light and makes the Everyday Bean Beanie feel very light to wear. On the other hand, it provides lots of warmth due to the bulky yarn.

I used the yarn recently in a different color before for a beanie I call Hubby’s Home Beanie which I absolutely love. You should check it out.

The Everyday Bean Beanie is another one of my Hubby’s favorite beanies that I created.

Which is why he allowed me to take more pictures of him wearing it. Even though he neither likes to take pictures nor be online widely visible.

If you have never made a beanie before, this for sure is an easy crochet hat pattern. It comes with a link to a complete tutorial on how to create the perfect beanies.

The Everyday Bean Beanie is for sure a beginner crochet hat pattern. It provides a small challenge when it comes to the bean stitch.

I really hope you like this bean stitch crochet hat pattern as well as the look of the Everyday Bean Beanie just as much as I do.

  1. Thank You, I’m a beginner, I wish I saw your hats before Christmas, were have you been, Should be wrapping gifts, but I got to make one of your hats. My Hubby needs one,fun….See what you did, put me behind on wrapping, bad girl..Love your Hats. Mary

  2. I’m enjoying this pattern so much. I started my second one today. I am using it to make hats for the children of the Appalachian Coalfields Ministry. I used an I hook with 4 ply yarn and it turned out just the right size for a youth. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

  3. I’m confused on row 7. It says to make a DC and then crochet around it, then it says to skip a space. The next row says to DC in each stitch ending with 48 stitches. How do you have 48 stitches if you’ve skipped every other stitch in the previous row?

    1. Well, the dc you make is counted as one stitch and then you go around it can crochet another stitch which then is compensated for the skipped stitch. Hope that makes sense now. Let me know if you need more help. Thanks for asking
