If you’re new to crochet or just want a super easy pattern thats easy to memorize, this is it!

This half double crochet beanie is what I use for the template for various other beanies, like my Tiny Kong beanie and my skull beanie (and my other graphed beanies).

I usually add some sort of border to the bottom because I think it looks more finished. The most common border I do is a single crochet border, but I also like reverse single crochet too.
