St. Patrick's Beanie - Free Crochet Pattern by Nicki's Homemade Crafts

 

It is the time of the year again: St. Patrick’s Day preparation. I always liked preparing for holidays, no matter which one. And St. Patrick’s Day is all about green’s, gold’s and clover’s. Well, I decided to combine all these into one by creating the St. Patrick’s Beanie.

Furthermore, the stitch I used for the beanie is a lacy stitch and is called the Irish Fan stitch, how appropriate. 🙂 Also, I used a different way of creating the brim by using front-post single crochet, which makes the brim knit-like. Very pretty.

After creating the beanie, I also attached a 4-leaf clover to the beanie to give it the extra special effect making it look even more like a St. Patrick’s Beanie. Doesn’t it look cute?

For all the stitches and the 4-leaf clover I created a video tutorial to make it even easier to make this beanie. I hope helps everyone:-)

I have the pattern uploaded on both Ravelry and Etsy. The link to pdf (ad-free) version of this pattern is all the way on the bottom of this pattern. 🙂

The pattern is designed for a adult/teen head, but can be adjusted to make it bigger and smaller as the pattern includes a specific stitch repeat that can be made more or less of to change the size of the beanie.

 

A 5.0mm hook was used for the pattern and I used the Caron simply soft yarn (in green, black and yellow) that can be purchased HERE thru Michael’s. (affiliate)

Click at the underlined link above to purchase at Michael’s (affiliate)

Gauge:

5dc x 2 rows = 1 square inch

Stitches used (click for video tutorial):

NOTE: These instructions are for a teen/adult head, but you could make it smaller or larger by just stopping earlier or extent it more. You can also use it as a messy bun/ponytail beanie by closing the hole temporally or permanently only a little bit. If you don’t do it permanently, then you can always change it back and forth.

In order to change the size of the giving pattern, the first thing you need to know is the head circumference of the person you are making the hat for. Furthermore, you will also need to know the height of hat that can be made bigger too depending on whether you want the hat to be snuggly on the top of the head or be slouchy (just add more green yarn rows to extent it).

Instructions:

BRIM:

With color A and a 5.0mm hook make a chain of 8 chains

Row 1: 1 sc the second chain from the hook, 1 sc in each stitch across, ch 1, turn (7 sts)

Row 2: 1 fpsc around each pole, ch 1, turn (7 sts) This video shows exactly how to do that.

Row 3-80: repeat row 2

Feel free to extent or shorten the brim according to the head circumference of the person wearing it in the end.

Fold the brim band in half (wrong side out) and connect the ends by slip stitching them together to make a circle. Then turn the brim right side out again.

Do NOT cut the yarn, continue below.
