12 Days of Christmas: Day 3 - One Hour Super Bulky Beanie

All of my 12 Days of Christmas Hats were created as Christmas gifts for less fortunate students at my best friend's school in Nashville who do not have adequate winter wear. These patterns are available free of charge, but please consider making a donation here to help brighten a child's Christmas.

The perfect last minute gift - a one hour beanie! This beanie is sized for elementary school children.

One Hour Super Bulky Beanie

  • super bulky yarn (I used Charisma)
  • N hook
  • yarn needle

Round 1: In magic circle, 12dc, join to first dc

Round 2: ch 2 (counts as stitch throughout), dc in same stitch, 2dc in every stitch (24), join to beginning ch
Round 3: ch 2, dc in same stitch, *dc in next stitch, 2dc in following stitch, repeat from * (36), join
Round 4: ch 2, dc in same stitch, *dc in next 2 stitches, 2dc in following stitch, repeat from * (48), join

Round 5-11: ch 2, dc in each stitch (48), join

Round 12: ch 1, sc in each stitch around (48), join, fasten off and weave in ends.

Note: For the brown and green/yellow/teal hat, I changed colors at round 10. For the green, white, and yellow hat, I changed colors on rounds 4, 7, 8, and 11. Rounds 7 and 12 are worked in hdc because I was going to run out of yarn if I used dc.

Add a few embellishments - a flower, some buttons, or an iron-on patch - to personalize the hat.

Check back tomorrow for how I add iron-on patches to crochet work.
