How to Crochet an Adult Beanie and Scarf

Learn how to crochet an adult beanie and scarf. This includes a free crochet beanie and scarf pattern. This crocheted adult beanie and scarf are made from Lion Brand super bulky yarn; the color is Louisville Julep, which is a seafoam green.

I crocheted this scarf and beanie for my good friend for Christmas. Seafoam green is her favorite color. I have been teaching her how to crochet. I remind her that you get better over time – – you learn more and your stitches get more consistent. I am still improving my technique.

I LOVE to crochet. I enjoy creating something with texture and a repeating pattern. I also like learning or creating new patterns. I tend to crochet more in the fall and winter while watching television at night with Neal. Crocheting keeps me from snacking . . . and I actually make something beautiful.

I am so thankful to my mother for teaching me when I was a child. She also taught me how to sew. I am thankful for that skill too!

CROCHET SCARF:

The scarf is approximately 6 feet long and 5 inches wide.

I used Lion Brand super bulky yarn.

Color: Louisville Julep

Skein: I used 2+ skeins (buy three skeins) of yarn, each skein has 81 yards. (I had to use part of the third skein, but not much.)

Hook: 9mm

Pattern:
1: With a size I (5.5mm) hook, ch 126.

NOTE: I use stitch markers to ensure I crochet the same number of stitches in each row. (I insert in my last stitch.)

2: Ch 1. Sc in the same ch st and in each ch st around (126).
3: Ch 2 (does not count as stitch). Sk next stitch. Work 1 dc in the following stitch. Work 1 dc in previous skipped stitch working over the previous dc. (Crossed DC). Repeat until the row is complete (126).
4: Ch 1. Sc in the first stitch and each stitch around. (126).

5: Ch 1. Sc in the first stitch and each stitch around. (126)
6: Ch 1 and TURN. Working on the wrong side (WS), 1 sc in the last stitch of the previous row. Bobble stitch (BS) in the next stitch. NOTE: I crocheted 3 dc (not 5 dc) for each bobble stich. Sc in the next 3 stitches. BS in the next stitch. Repeat and end the row with two sc in the last stitch. (126).

7: Ch 1. Sc in the first stitch and each stitch around. (126).

8: Ch 1. Sc in the first stitch and each stitch around. (126)

9: Ch 2 (does not count as stitch). Sk next stitch. Work 1 dc in the following stitch. Work 1 dc in previous skipped stitch working over the previous dc. (Crossed DC). Repeat until the row is complete (126).

FINISHING:

Tie off and use a tapestry needle to weave the end of the tread into the design to hide it.

CROCHET BEANIE:

I also made this hat to match the scarf.

I used Lion Brand super bulky yarn.

Color: Louisville Julep

Skein: I used 1 skein of yarn, each skein has 81 yards.

Hook: 9mm

ch = chain

hdc – half double crochet

If you want the beanie to be more like a slouch beanie, just add more chains in row one and then add the same number of hdc in each subsequent row. To make the hat larger, you can add more rows. To make the hat smaller, add less rows.

Row 1: Ch 26

Row 2: In the 2nd ch, hdc and continue this in each ch for a total of 25.

Rows 3-26: chain 1, hdc in just the back loop (typically you work a hdc in both loops, but in this pattern you will only work in the front loop).

Add more rows to make a bigger beanie to a larger head size.

Stitch the beanie closed using a tapestry needle.

Then, stitch the top of the beanie closed using a tapestry needle. Weave in the ends of the yarn.

Enjoy your beautiful hat and scarf or better yet give this to a friend to let them know how much you love them.
