This bulky crochet ribbed beanie is the coziest hat to wear in the winter! The classic ribbing is both modern in style and very easy to crochet. Available as a free pattern, this ribbed beanie works up quickly and is available in 4 different sizes!
Last winter I designed the Amaia Beanie, and I wore it all the time. The drape and comfortability of the hat is absolutely incredible! However, I live in the Midwest and I walk to class every day in the blistery cold weather, which is not an enjoyable combination. The lighter weight hat was not keeping me warm when I had to brave the cold. Naturally, I knew I had to make a bulkier version of the Amaia Beanie, since I loved the design and comfortability of the hat!
I have already worn this bulky version multiple times and it has kept me so warm and cozy! The ribbing in this beanie looks unbelievably like knit and it is both modern and simplistic in style. The folded brim allows easy adjustments to the slouchiness while adding another layer of warmth.
The pattern is written in 4 sizes (baby, toddler, child, and adult), however the pattern can easily be adjusted to fit your preferences. The size customization is detailed in the notes below!
For this beanie, I used Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca in the color “Taupe.” This is a #4 weight yarn, although I do think it is slightly on the thicker side. Soft to touch and cozy to wear, Touch of Alpaca is the perfect yarn for winter accessories because it keeps you toasty warm through all the winter months!
