Pattern: The Pebbles Beanie

Who else thinks of fruity pebbles when they see the Hudson Bay color from Lion brand Wool-ease yarn?? It’s not just me right? That’s how this hat got the name the Pebbles Beanie! This pattern fits the average woman’s head but is easily customizable by adding more or less rows and stitches. This beanie is made to be fitted instead of slouchy, so if you like a slouchier look be sure to add more chains in the beginning!

Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram if you make a Pebbles Beanie! I love seeing your creations! 🙂


  • 8mm crochet hook

  • Super bulky yarn in 2 colors. I used Lion brand wool-ease thick and quick in Fisherman and Hudson Bay.

  • Yarn needle


This hat is first worked back and fourth in rows to make the main section of the hat. The brim is made last with your second color.

HHDC:  Herringbone Half Double Crochet. Yarn Over, Insert hook into indicated stitch. Yarn over and draw through the stitch AND the first loop on your hook. Yarn over and draw through remaining loops on hook.

FPHDC: Front post half double crochet

BPHDC: Back post half double crochet


Ch 15

Row 1: HHDC in second ch from hook and across. (14 HHDC) Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: HHDC in each stitch across. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until your work measures 19 inches, un-stretched. Mine was 29 rows.

Fold your work in half and slip stitch the beginning and ending rows together. Cut yarn, leaving a length long enough to sew the top of your hat shut and add a pompom. I like to weave my yarn in and out of the stitches and pull tight like a drawstring to close.

Turn your work correct side out.

Take your second color and attach it to the bottom of your hat. I like to attach mine at the seam. CH 1.

Round 1: HDC evenly around the bottom of the hat. Make sure you use enough stitches so that the brim is not too snug. I made 45 HDC. Sl St to the top of the first HDC.

Round 2: Ch 1, FPHDC around same stitch, BPHDC around next stitch. Repeat FPHDC/BPHDC around. Sl St to the top of the first HDC.

Round 3: Repeat round 2.

Tie off. Add your pompom (optional) using the leftover length of yarn from sewing your hat shut. Weave in all ends.
