The Jersey Beanie

Its been a pretty mild winter here in New Jersey, but that hasn’t stopped the winter hat addiction I seem to have. I love hats. This is one of my favorites so far. Its a super squishy, really soft & warm hat that is quick and easy to make. It works up ridiculously fast. I made 3 different hats in one day!!! I crochet slowly too! If you’re ready for the pattern, keep on reading!! You can download an AD FREE pdf from my shop or from ravelry for $1.00.

The Jersey Beanie

By At WIPS End Crochet – A Work In Progress

February 3, 2017

The Jersey hat is a two color fully ribbed beanie that looks great and is soft & warm. This hat works up quickly, uses 3 colors in total, less than 1/2 skein of each! It’s perfect if you have partial skeins laying around. It is also worked from the top down.

Supplies:

  • Hobby Lobby I love this yarn in 3 colors or any other worsted(4) Weight Yarn- 1 ball of each color
  • J/6.0mm Crochet Hook
  • K/6.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Pompom Maker
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle

Crochet Terms used are US/American

  • Ch– Chain
  • M/R – Magic Ring/Magic Circle
  • SlSt– Slip Stitch
  • dc – Double Crochet
  • Fpdc– Front Post Double Crochet
  • sc–Single Crochet
  • SSC – Split Single Crochet
  • F/O – Finish Off
  • C1 – Color #1
  • C2–Color #2
  • C3 – Color #3
GAUGE: Gauge is important to attain proper size.This swatch is completed by using the following pattern:row 1 dc, row 2Fpdc, row 3bpdc repeat row 2 & 3. When measuring for gauge height, turn your swatch over. You will be able to better distinguish rows. * See gauge photos on last page

Gauge is, using 6.5 mm hook and I love this yarn (4) is:
2 inches = 6sts& 4 rows

Pattern Notes:

*The Split Single Crochet (also called the wainscoat stitch or the center single crochet)is performed by inserting your hook in the “V” of the stitch from the previous round/row. Y/O pull up a loop, Y/O pull through both loops. It is essentially a “SC” but it is not done in the traditional loops of the stitch. –see figure 1

Ch1, Ch2do NOT count as stitches

In this pattern, I join to the 2nd fpdc in the round. This moves the CH2 to the inside of the hat. It also creates a seamless beanie, while not “messing” with the final dimensions. Each fpdc is started around the 1st fpdc from previous round (see figure 2)
