One of my all time favorite shows of my childhood is Ed Edd n’ Eddy, so naturally after learning how to crochet I immediately figured out how to made a beanie inspired by Edd.

Edd was my favorite character in the show, and Ed was a close second haha.
If you watched it, what was your favorite character?

I would definitely consider this beanie beginner level, the stitching can be a little tricky to get down at first but once you’ve got the hang of it it goes by super quick πŸ™‚

I’ve made a striped version of this beanie in Rasta colors, and omitted the stripes. It looked pretty good!

~Gauge:
13 sts and 8 rows with a J hook = 4” square

Instructions

Rnd 1 – 12 dc in a magic ring (or ch 4, st st to first ch to form a ring. Ch 2, 12 dcs in ring). (12 dcs)
Rnd 2 – ch 2, 2 dc in same st. *2 dc in next st*. Repeat all the way around (24 dcs)
Rnd 3 – ch 2, dc in same st. dc in next st. 2 dc in next st. *dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st.* repeat * to * around. (32 dcs)
Rnd 4 – ch 2, dc in same st. dc in next 2 st. 2 dc in next st. *dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st.* repeat * to * around. (40 dcs)
Rnd 5 – ch 2, dc in same st. dc in next 3 st. 2 dc in next st. *dc in next 4 sts, 2 dc in next st.* repeat * to * around. (48 dcs)
Rnd 6 – ch 2, dc in same st. dc in next 4 st. 2 dc in next st. *dc in next 5 sts, 2 dc in next st.* repeat * to * around. (56 dcs)
Rnd 7 – ch 2, dc in same st. dc in next 5 st. 2 dc in next st. *dc in next 6 sts, 2 dc in next st.* repeat * to * around. (64 dcs)
Rnd 8 – ch 2, dc in same st. dc in next 6 st. 2 dc in next st. *dc in next 7 sts, 2 dc in next st.* repeat * to * around. (72 dcs)
Rnd 9 – ch 2, dc in same st and in each st around (72 dcs)
Rnds 10 – 25 – repeat rnd 9
Rnd 26 – With G hook (or size needed to obtain gauge) ch 1, sc in same st and in each st across (72 scs)
Rnds 27 – 30 – repeat rnd 26 in back loops only. Fasten off and weave in ends after rnd 30.

(If you want your brim to be a little wider you can add a few more repeats of rnd 26 in BLO)

To sew the lines on the sides, cut a long piece of white yarn (I use the yarn and measure the length of the hat, double that length, and then triple THAT length, make sense?). Thread it through your embroidery needle and insert it into the middle of a stitch on round 25 (see photos below).

1) Start by inserting your needle here in the middle of a dc in round 25.

2) Bring your needle back through this part of the stitch on round 25.

3) Continue going down the side of the beanie in this manner, poking up through like in step one and back down in step 2.

4) This shows how I usually go through the stitching on the beanie, it’s a little faster.
