Crochet Big Pom Beanie

The weather is officially getting colder and we are approaching towards winter ( it has even started snowing in some parts of the world)! So it's definitely beanie season! Last year I made the Urban Slouchy Beanie so this year I went for something completely different! I used a chunky acrylic and wool blend in black and grey to make my Big Pom Beanie and a 9mm (M/13) crochet hook! It's actually the first time I'm crocheting with such a soft (oh the softness) yet chunky yarn! I love the feeling!:) I alos added a big pom pom on top to make it cuter and more stylish!:)

The beanie measures 45cm (18inc) in circumference and it's length is 28cm (11inc) with the pom pom. You might find the size a bit small but due to the chunky yarn it's ok!

You are going to crochet using two basic stitches, the sl st (slip stitch) and the sc (single crochet stitch)
Ribbing

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn (6)
Row 2: sl st into each sc across, turn and ch 1 (6)

Row 4: sl st into each sc across, turn and ch 1 (6)
Repeat Rows 3&4 until you ribbing measures approx. 45cm (18inc) or until you reach your head circumference.
Fold the piece in half to form a circle and sl st the two sides together. Fasten off.

  5. What yarn did you use. I'm gonna start over w/ something softer- my first attempt was thick n quick and while I love the look, something softer is what I'm going for. Thanks!

    1. Hi Lynn,

      I used an acrylic and wool blend yarn, 75%wool and 25% acrylic!
      I guess if you use a more wooly yarn you will geet that soft feeling!
      Hope that helps! Good luck!
