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.

The yarn

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.

With hook size 10mm and color pink: ch 18 (21, 23, 26), turn.

Leave a long tail end for closing the top later.

Row 1:
sl st in 2nd ch and each ch across, turn <17 (20, 22, 25) sl st>

Row 2:
ch 1, sl st blo in each st across, turn <17 (20, 22, 25) sl st>

Repeat row 2 until row 19 (23, 27, 31).

Change to white

Repeat row 2 until row 43 (51, 57, 65). This means that you will be working 24 (28, 30, 34) rows in the white color.

Change to pink

Repeat row 2 until row 46 (54, 60, 68). This means that you will be working 3 more rows in the pink color.

Rectangle should now measure:

Toddler: 12.5″ x 6.5″ / 32 cm x 16 cm
Child: 15″ x 7.5″ / 38 cm x 19 cm
Teen/Adult Small: 16.5″ x 8.5″ / 42 cm x 21 cm
Adult Large: 19″ x 9.5″ / 48 cm x 24 cm

Tip: you can add or remove as many rows as needed for your size.

Do not fasten off yet.


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:

  1. Whip stitch along the top edge of your beanie, placing approximately one stitch for each row.
  2. Pull the strand as tight as possible to close the hole.
  3. 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.
