About the pattern
Crocheting this two colored beanie is easy – simply create a flat rectangle, fold in half, and seam the sides.
Made using slip stitches in the back loop only, it looks like it’s knitted with a simple yet stunning ribbed effect.
For this beanie I used Durable Dare, a new, soft and chunky anti-pilling acrylic yarn available in 62 colors, ranging from lovely pastel shades to vibrant bold colors and delicate neutral tones.
Kits containing all the yarn and a PDF version of this pattern are available on Yarnsea!

Ch 1, fold the rectangle in half with the right side facing outwards. Please note that the visible color changes (wrong side) should be on the inside.
Work the sides together using sl st. Insert the hook in the back loops of the ch and sl st. Fasten off; you’ll end at the bottom of the beanie and you’ll need to use a separate strand of yarn to close the top.
If you added or removed a row and find yourself on the other side of your work, join the sides together using slip stitches by inserting the hook into the back loop of the sl st and ch. Fasten off, leaving a long end for closing the top.
Closing the top
Turn your work inside out, with the wrong side (visible color changes) facing outward. The little ‘v’ stitches should be going upwards.
With a strand of yarn and a needle:
- Whip stitch along the top edge of your beanie, placing approximately one stitch for each row.
- Pull the strand as tight as possible to close the hole.
- Secure it by adding a few extra stitches across the cinched top until it’s fully closed.
Weave in all ends and turn beanie inside out.
