Pink Hearts Beanie

Valentine's Day is so near! I keep seeing projects with hearts on them on my timeline lately. So many beautiful projects to make this coming Heart's Day. And here is mine in time for this season. Either you can make this and give it to someone special or make it for your own. 

I really like this color combination. I initially want it in Red and White but I run out of yarn and decided to make it Pink and Grey and I'm glad I did. It turn out really pretty.  And it is so easy to make also. So here is the pattern for this beanie.

  • Yarn in Grey and Baby Pink ( RH Soft Grey ; RH SS Baby Pink)
  • H/5.0m Crochet Hook
  • I/5.5m Crochet Hook
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Pompom Maker

Stitches Used:
  • st (s) - stitch (es)
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • BLOSC - back loop single crochet



With your H hook and your Grey Yarn.

Row 1. Chain 11, sc in the second ch from the hook. Ch 1 and turn. 

Row 2. SC in first st then BLOSC in the next 8 sts, sc in last st (both loops). Ch 1 and turn.

Row 3. Repeat Row 2 until your ribbing measures 20 inches with my tension I made it up to Row 70.  You can really adjust the ribbing according to your size.  

Join both ends of the ribbing and sl st them together. Do not cut your yarn and continue making the body of the hat.

Body of  the Hat

Change your hook size to I /5.0mm
Round 1. Chain 1, sc in first st and all the way around. Just try to squeeze in 84 sc into the ribbing of the hat. You can make 2 sc in a st in some stitches along the way to make all you sc a total of 84. At the end , join with a sl st in first st. (84sc)

Round 2.  Ch 1, sc in first st and all the way around. Join with a sl st in first st. (84sc)

Round 3- 18.  Ch 1, sc in first st and all the way around. Follow the graph below for your heart beanie. Round 3 is Row 19 in the picture. This is the start of your changing in color as the graph suggest. In this pattern the heart will be repeated 4 times.

Round 19-30.  With your Grey yarn continue to repeat Round 2 until round 30. 

Round 31. Ch 1, *sc in first st and in next, sc decrease in next* Repeat all the way to the end. Join with a sl st in first st.

Round 32. Ch 1, * sc in first st, sc decrease in next * Repeat all the way to the end. Join with a sl st in first st. 

Round 33. Ch 1, sc in first st, sc decrease in next and the rest of all the stitches. Break yarn and leave a long tail for gathering the crown or closing up the hole. Gather the crown and weave all ends.

Make your pompom in pink and grey color. I made mine more of pink. Then attached it to your beanie and your done.
