Who has two thumbs and loves to make beanies?! My friend Jill! Jill is a moderator for the Heart Hook Home Crochet Community and boy, let me tell you, she is a HOOT! Jill and her dog, Libby, are constantly keeping us laughing, cheering, and ooohing and ahhhing. Her love of making hats is legendary, so this one’s for you, Jill!

After publishing The Cameron beanie, a child size beanie, I was promptly asked for an adult size beanie based off of the same pattern. So, I crunched the numbers and whipped up the adult size beanie, which I am calling The Libby, after Jill’s adorable furry friend.

Pattern Notes: 

Pattern written US terms.

Width of brim: approx. 11”

After ribbing is completed, work in a spiral instead of joining each round.

We are using the Half Double Crochet in the Third Loop Only, for which a tutorial can be found here.

Ribbing is Front Post/Back Post HDC, for which a tutorial can be found here.

If you would like to add a pom pom, I have a helpful tutorial! I think I would use a solid, corresponding color using remnant worsted weight yarn were I to add a pom.

My son Cameron (the owner of The Cameron Beanie) was my photographer for this photo shoot, and I must say that he did a fantastic job! We even found a furry caterpillar during our shoot, so of course I had to take a photo of that as well. 🙂 He takes some good photos, don’t you think? This is not the first time he’s worked as my photographer… he took photos for my Cold Shoulder Cover Up as well! Also, YES, that is a nerf dart in the background. LOL! Such is life around these parts! 😛

Now, I haven’t timed myself when crocheting this adult size beanie, but I can say that they work up SUPER fast! I love the chunky yarn, the larger hook, and the spiral stitches. And those yarn color changes! ♥

    1. Hi Fay! I have a tutorial on how to crochet into the 3rd loop which can be found here: https://hearthookhome.com/third-loop-half-double-crochet-video-tutorial/
  1. Hi there! I am so excited to try this hat out but I do have one quick question. After row 1, do you slip stitch the two ends together to make it round or does that happen at the end? Thank you for your time!
