CROCHET PATTERN - Ponytail Beanie




If you love beanies, but can't wear them because you have a huge ponytail... your problems are solved!  

This pattern works up quickly and is very easy!

MATERIALS:  I/9 or J/10 hook, WW yarn, scissors, yarn needle
(Pink hat shown is made with Red Heart With Love.)

GAUGE:  8 DC and 4 rows = 2" with I hook.

STITCH GUIDE:  SC - single crochet, DC - double crochet, HDC - half double crochet, ST - stitch, SL ST - slip stitch

NOTES:  The Ch-2 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as a stitch.  SL ST to the 1st stitch of each round instead.  The hair hole is placed at the back-center of the head.  Easily move it up or down by making the hole in a different round.

Use the I hook for Child size.  Use the J hook for Adult size.

Start with Magic Ring or ch 4/join.

Round 1: CH 2, work 12 DC in loop, join.  [12 DC]

Round 2: CH 2, 2 DC in each DC around, join.  [24 DC]

Round 3: CH 2, (1 DC in next ST, 2 DC in next ST) around, join.  [36 DC]

Round 4: CH 2, (1 DC in next 2 STS, 2 DC in next ST) around, join.  [48 DC]

Round 5: CH 2, (1 DC in next 3 STS, 2 DC in next ST) around, join.  [60 DC]

Round 6:  CH 2, DC in each DC around, join.  [60 DC]

Round 7: CH 2, DC in next ST, CH 5, skip next 5 STS, DC in each ST around, join.

Round 8: CH 2, DC in next ST, 5 HDC into CH-5 space, DC in each remaining ST around, join.

Round 9: CH 2, DC in each ST around, join.  [60 DC]

Repeat Round 9 four more times for Child hat, or 5 more times for Adult hat.  Add additional rounds as needed for length. Fasten off & weave in all ends.

OPTIONAL IDEAS:  Work 1 round of SC at end of hat.  Create a shell border.  Put a pom pom on top.  Add a bow or flower.  Make a striped hat.
