The Wave Beanie

The Wave Beanie - Free crochet beanie pattern

Recently I’ve purchased my first beanie! I know that might sound a little crazy to anyone else who lives in the Northeastern U.S., but I’ve never really been a hat person until this winter. I made the wave beanie to mimic the style of my newly purchased hat. You can wear this beanie with the ribbed bottom down for a slouchier fit (as pictured above). Or you can fold that section up for a more fitted cap like the picture below .

To create this hat, I used a variation of this stitch to give the hat some elasticity as well as a really interesting texture.

You can get the printable version of this pattern for $1.99 HERE.

Without further ado, here’s the free pattern!

  1. I have tried to make this hat and I believe that there is a problem with row 4. I believe it should read skip first st, 4 sl st, and the rest of the row should be right. If it is done as written you would end up with 50 stitches total for that row. Please let me know if I am doing something wrong as I really like the look of this hat and wanted to make it for myself. I never make anything for me.

    1. Thanks again for catching that mistake. I reworked the pattern and row 4 was incorrect as you’d found! The correct written pattern for row 4 is the following:

      Row 4: skip first st, 9 sl st, *5 hdc, 5 sl st* 2 times, 5 hdc, 10 sc, ch 1, turn (45)
