It's that time of year again! We are all gearing up for Christmas and getting out our favorite cold weather hats, scarves, and sweaters. That also means that crochet beanies, hats, and scarves are a wardrobe staple again!
I love crocheting beanies (hints the name Beanies & Weenies)! They are my favorite thing to start with at craft fairs and always make a great Christmas gift. My ribbed beanie is by far my favorite crochet beanie yet and today, I'm sharing my pattern with you! The faux fur pom-pom on top is optional, but I highly recommend it because it is just too cute!
If you've read my About page, you know that Beanies & Weenies started as a search for the perfect crochet beanie. While the jury's still out on if I have found it or not, this crochet ribbed beanie comes pretty darn close.
The crochet pattern for this ribbed beanie is super simple, and great for beginners. It is work in rows, not the round, and from side to side, not top to bottom. So, it is completely customizable! Not to mention, it can easily be altered to fit a child's head.
Check out the free crochet pattern for this ribbed beanie below and be sure to check out my Etsy for an ad-free, printable copy. If you make this beanie, I would to see your finished product!

Add more alternating rows if you desire a larger beanie, ending with an odd number of rows. Alternately, decrease number of rows for a tighter beanie.
Cut yarn with a tail as long as the beanie. Use a tapestry needle and whip stitch the sides of the beanie together. If desired, sew faux fur pom-pom to the top of the beanie. Hide tails.
Beanie can be worn with the brim rolled up or long with the brim rolled down.
